These pomegranate martinis, dubbed the Martini Bomb, are the ideal way to kick off an adult night at home. Personal I love pomegranates and will take them anyway I can get them. They’re light and refreshing, with a sweet tart flavor that’ll make you giggle all night. That’s exactly what they did in this house! If you’re driving, just remember to drink responsibly; otherwise, have fun!
I love having date night with the hubby (yes, we still date) and these Pomegranate Martinis on the list to start out our night. I’ll starting by making these to enjoy while cooking with my husband in the kitchen with a little music playing in the background. He will even twirl me around the kitchen floor a time or two while enjoy our date night in the kitchen.
I wanted to add some of the seeds to the glass, but sadly, our little local store was out of fresh pomegranates, So I’ll have to wait till the next time I prepare them to add those crispy, delectable bits. The Pomegranate Martini is still just as good without them!
My trademark beverage is a pomegranate martini made with citrus vodka and lime. We use it to toast the holidays and during family gatherings. It’s particularly popular around Rosh Hashanah, when pomegranates are eaten to symbolize “new fruit” and the start of the harvest season.
With sweetened lime juice, I used to make this Pomegranate Martini cocktail. For a more subtle, balanced sweetness, I’ve just switched to fresh lime juice. I also added orange blossom water, which gives the cocktail a beautiful scent.
Pomegranates, as I like to call them, are my “spirit fruit.” Throughout the Torah, this ancient fruit is referenced multiple times. Pomegranates are said to have been adorning the pillars of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. While pomegranate martinis weren’t available back then, they’re fun to drink as a throwback.
This cocktail has a lovely deep red hue and a lively, crisp taste. The pomegranate seeds at the bottom of the glass are a delicious surprise.

This combination of tastes creates the ideal pomegranate orange drink!
Is it possible for diabetics to drink cocktails?
A lot of people question me about diabetes and alcohol. It’s not something to be taken lightly, and it’s a personal decision.
Consume alcohol in moderation and with caution. Before drinking alcohol, I prefer to recommend that patients with diabetes follow a few principles.
