The Power Of The Cosmo


The Pomegranate Cosmopolitan

A perfect fall crowd pleaser, as well as the perfect topper for Spanish tapas this fall season is, in fact, the Pomegranate Cosmo. Yesterday, I put this one out during the usual group of onlookers around my TV screen (yep, you guessed it – the NY Jets game) and it went over quite well:

The Pomegranate Cosmo
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves 10

Ingredients:
Handful of ice cubes
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 cup Vodka
1/2 oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
3/4 oz Pomegranate Juice

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain and serve in chilled martini glasses Garnish with a twist of lime.

By the way, my tapas were as followed (as well as just plain super!):
. Cubed garlic beef and Spanish olives
· Tortilla Espanola (Spanish Omelet)
· Grilled Serrano Ham and Manchego Cheese Crostini
· Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed With Spanish Olive Tapenade and Crabmeat
· Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
· Mussels With Ham, Bell Peppers, and Tomatoes
· Pan Roasted Shrimp With Toasted Garlic

Interesting game (as well as a nail-biting one for all of you who tuned in to watch it!), but the food spread around the old "homestead" made everything even that much more enjoyable.
