What’s more Californian than pomegranates? This cocktail is just a hint sweeter and fruitier than an traditional Manhattan. It’s worth splurging on the good booze for this cocktail.
For each drink you’ll need
- 1 1/2 ounces bourbon or rye whiskey – I like Maker’s 46
- 1/2 ounce Antica Formula vermouth
- 1 teaspoon pomegranate molasses
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
- ~6 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients except the ice in a cocktail shaker. Stir until the pomegranate molasses dissolves. Add ice and shake.
Serve in a martini glass. Garnish with a few pomegranate seeds if you have them.
