Eight months until Halloween may seem too early to be party planning, but it’s always five o’clock somewhere, kittens. With the recent announcement that the 1968 horror classic Rosemary’s Baby is being remade as a four-part miniseries starring Zoe Saldana, I thought it would be the perfect time to feature this spooky little recipe from our friends over at Boy Drinks World – a simple concoction of vodka and pomegranate that skyrocketed to popularity in the 60’s after it appeared as the Satanic cocktail of choice in the original film. Not only is this cocktail a clever choice for Halloween, it might be just the thing to make watching a Rosemary’s Baby remake palatable, darlings.
2 1/2 ounces vodka
½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
½ ounce grenadine syrup
Fill cocktail shaker 2/3 full of ice and add ingredients. Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass.
You can make your own grenadine syrup by combining equal parts sugar and slightly warmed pomegranate juice (POM 100% pomegranate juice is a good choice). Swirl to combine.
