Celebrate life with clones for two of Friday's delicious new martinis: The super tasty Pomegranate Martini features PAMA, the first (and best) pomegranate liqueur on the planet. The Candy Apple Martini tastes like a liquid caramel apple -- really good stuff. As with any properly prepared martini, be sure to chill each glass by filling it with ice before making the drink, and shake everything up with much fury and enthusiasm before pouring.

Pomegranate Martini
1 1/2 ounces PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
1 ounce Skyy Vodka
1/2 ounce Cointreau Liqueur
1 1/2 ounces Ocean Spray cranberry juice cocktail

Garnish
orange wedge

Candy Apple Martini
1 ounce Stolichnaya Vanil Vodka
2 ounces DeKuyper Pucker Sour Apple Schnapps
1 1/2 ounces Hiram Walker Butterscotch Schnapps

Garnish
thin apple slice
caramel sauce

Pomegranate Martini
1. Fill an 8-ounce martini glass with ice to chill it.

2. Drop a handful of ice into a cocktail shaker. Add PAMA, vodka, Cointreau, and cranberry juice to the shaker, close it up and shake thoroughly. Really shake it like crazy, so that you get some tiny ice chips in your drink.

3. Pour the ice out of the martini glass, and then strain drink into the glass.

4. Make a cut into the orange wedge and place it onto the rim of the glass. Serve it up or sip it yourself.
 
Makes 1 drink.

Candy Apple Martini
1. Fill an 8-ounce martini glass with ice to chill it.

2. Drop a handful of ice into a cocktail shaker. Add vodka and the schnapps to the shaker, close it up and give it a real good shake.

3. Pour the ice out of the martini glass, and then strain drink into the glass.

4. Make a cut halfway through the apple slice, and then slide apple slice onto the rim of the glass. Drizzle some caramel over the apple slice so that it drips down into the glass.

Makes 1 drink.

You can also drizzle the caramel in the bottom of the glass to make a cool pattern before adding the liquid.

We had a party christmas Eve and made the pom martini's. We used pomegranate juice (100% pom not mixed juice coctails) which streatches the liquor and also makes it less piquant. I think that the liqueuer will only make it sweeter. The bartender was making these things faster than you could pour they were THAT good!
