Give Your Cocktails a Pomegranate Kick

Cucumber Ruby

Pomegranates have started appearing in the markets — and in cocktails, too. The ruby in this gem is PAMA, a pomegranate-flavored liqueur. It adds a tart edge to complement the sweetness of the elderflower liqueur  and the refreshing coolness of the cucumber-flavored vodka. The recipe is featured at Swig Martini Bar, 111 W. Crockett St., which recently redid its cocktail list to include a whole series of drinks as fresh and fun as this Cucumber Ruby. Cucumber Ruby Chili powder Salt 1 ounce Pearl Cucumber Vodka 1/2 ounce PAMA Liqueur 1/2 ounce St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur Dash of simple syrup Dash of lime juice Cucumber wedge, garnish Rim a chilled martini glass with salt and chili powder. In a shaker, combine vodka, liqueurs, lime juice and simple syrup. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into glass and garnish with a cucumber wedge. Makes 1 cocktail. From Swig Martini Bar
