My Pomegranate Martini (or Red Carpet Martini) is elegant, colorful, delicious – and perfect for Oscar night viewing! It’s also easy to prepare, calling for only 4 ingredients.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


  • 3 1/2 tablespoons (1 3/4 ounces) really good vodka
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) Cointreau
  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) pomegranate juice
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) freshly squeezed lime juice (or 1/4 oz fresh lime juice and 1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice)
  • Slice or wedge of lime, for garnish


  1. Fill a martini or coupe glass with ice water to quickly chill; let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and dry.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes (large cubes won’t melt as quickly as small cubes in the spirits and/or liqueur).
  3. Add vodka, Cointreau and juices; shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds.
  4. Pour through a cocktail strainer into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Garnish with a wedge or slice of lime.


Gluten free: use gluten-free vodka.
