This is a pomegranate martini with bonus points for
being lighter, fresher and healthier. Why? Because it's made with real
pomegranate juice versus a flavored brandy, liqueur, flavored syrup or other
artificial flavor. Bars won't always carry the fresh stuff because of the shelf
life of truly potent, healthy, nutritionally packed pomegranate juice, which can cut down on
the profit margins. So one point for SkinnyTinis—because you're making these from
home! You can save some money, add some nutrition to your 'tini and still have "All
the Fun for Half the Calories!"
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 10 to 15
Strain into a 5-ounce martini glass.Be careful as you shake any
SkinnyTini containing a carbonated mixer, as it can have a powerful and
slightly messy effect on your kitchen. To ease the situation, wrap the shaker
in a towel and shake gently.

Skinny Tidbit: Pomegranate juice has
been getting a lot of press the last few years. Why? Because it deserves it!
The juice is not just delicious, but it's also packed with vitamin C and potassium, low
in calories and touted as a dense source of antioxidants. Serious research is
being done, and results are proving that 8 ounces a day for about three months can
improve heart health, fight cancer and reduce inflammation. Cheers to that!
