Jen from Knox & Co serving up Pearl Pomegranate Vodka Martinis at Food & Drink Fest!

Last week I was chatting with Jen from Knox & Co. International about the various holiday parties I have hosting duties for, and she graciously sent me some chic cocktail ideas to help ease my party planning stress load.  All drink recipes Jen sent me are based around the Pearl Pomegranate Vodka Mix, which also reduces the cost of buying many different types of alcohol.  I asked for recipes using Pearl because I thought it would be a classy, unique and festive alcohol to use over the holidays, due to its colour, sweet and tangy taste and because there seems to be a pomegranate craze occurring in the culinary world these days.  Hope these recipes help!  I would love to hear feedback on the recipes

The Pearl Flirtini”

1 ½ oz   Pearl Pomegrante Vodka

4 oz       Chilled Champagne (or you can substitute with Sparkling Wine)

Splash of Grenadine

The Pearl Flirtini is served in a champagne flute and anybody I have ever served it to rave about it.

I enjoyed the “Pearl Flirtini” this past weekend for a friend’s birthday. It definitely had the feeling of a “celebration drink” and my friend loved that I made a signature drink just for her birthday.  The celebratory nature of the Flirtini will certainly come in handy over Christmas and to “Cheers” in the New Year. The Flirtini is also very easy to make, which means you will actually be able to enjoy your party instead of getting stuck at the bar all night mixing drinks for others to enjoy. Simply pour Pearl Pomegranate Vodka into champagne flute and add champagne to fill.  Add a splash of grenadine for colour.  Pomegranate seeds make a cute and sassy garnish as well.  I must say when I served the Pearl Flirtini this past weekend, it looked so amazing in the glass that it ended up being a show piece and conversation starter at the party.  Better yet, it tasted even more amazing than it looked!

While I haven’t tried the next two drinks; Jen assured me that they have been a hit with everyone she has served them to.  If Jen says they are delicious, I trust that they are.  She was certainly right about the Pearl Flirtini!
