Instructions

1

Take a martini glass and fill it half way with crushed ice, then set aside. This chills the glass. Normally we would fill the whole glass but because of the sage rub, that doesn't work here. And am I the only one who giggles when I hear the word rub?

2

Fill a mixing glass 1/3 full with crushed ice, add 4 ounces of vodka, 2 ounces fresh pomegranate juice, 1 ounce Grand Marnier, and the juice from half of a lime. Cover with the shaker and shake the hell out of it for 10 seconds. NOTE: Ever wonder when to shake a cocktail or when to stir it? While a few cocktails don't follow the rules, here are some guidelines. Shake drinks that contain juices, cream liqueurs, mixes, syrups, eggs or dairy. Stir everything else. Be sure to check out my holiday cocktail book, Holidazed, for even more cocktail geekery!

FACT: The word grenade comes from the French term for pomegranate; it's spelled like the weapon, but is pronounced gruh-NOD, you know, because it's French and all. In the 16th century, European armies used round, fist-sized bombs filled with large grains of gunpowder. Their shape, and the gunpowder's resemblance to pomegranate arils, is how they got their name. Oddly enough, newer grenades, with their segmented shell and oblong shape, are sometimes referred to as pineapples. If you love poms as much as I do, be sure to check out my instructional video on how to seed a pomegranate.

Dump the ice from the martini glass and rub the inside area and the rim of the glass with a fresh sage leaf. Strain the shaken cocktail into the glass and serve. You can garnish it how I did, or just with a fresh sage leaf. Pomegranate arils will also work.
