- 2 oz. Vodka
- 1 oz- Triple Sec
- splash of lemon juice (optional)
- Garnish: Infused pomegranate seeds (optional)

To coat the rim of martini glass, wet the rim with lemon juice and dip the rim in a bowl of sugar.
*To make 1 oz of simple syrup, dissolve 1 tablespoon of sugar into 1 tablespoon of super hot water.
To infuse pomegranate seeds soak them for 12-24 hours in vodka. (in the refrigerator). I pop them into the freezer before serving to get them really chilled.
