Pom-Lemon Martini

Would you like a great cocktail to make for your friends this Super Bowl Sunday?  My friend Kyle made this drink for me last weekend and it was DELICIOUS.  It had a wonderful pomegranate and lemon flavor and boy did it have a nice kick to it!  The sugar rim helped make this tart drink extra tasty and beautiful.  At first we just garnished with lemon but later on we added some pomegranate seeds and they were a great addition. We thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails!  Thank you Kyle.

Rub a wedge of lemon around the rim of a martini glass.  Pour some white sugar onto a small plate.  Dip the rim of the martini glass into the sugar. Fill a shaker (or another glass) with ice then add the vodka, pomegranate liqueur, juice from a 1/4 of a lemon, and a splash of sparkling water.  Shake really well then carefully pour into your prepared martini glass.  Finish the drink off with a wedge of lemon as a garnish and some pomegranate seeds.  Enjoy!
