Am I the only person who has no idea what to do with pomegranate? I used one for decor last year, and after Christmas, I wanted to use it, so I ended up making a drink out of it. When in doubt, add vodka. Words to live by.

Homemade Pomegranate Martini

Homemade pomegranate martini

2 ounces vodka
20 pomegranate seeds
1/2 ounce pomegranate juice
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup ice

Pour pomegranate juice, vodka and ice into cocktail shaker. Squeeze lemon over it, using your other hand to catch lemon seeds. Shake! Pour into martini glass, and add pomegranate seeds for garnish (so now your cocktail is nutritious too).

You could also lose the vodka and mix the pomegranate juice and seeds with champagne for a festive drink!
