Ingredients
  • 2 1/4  cups 
    pomegranate juice
  • 2 1/4  cups 
    vodka
  • 1   cup 
    lime juice
  • 3/4  cup 
    Cointreau, or Grand Marnier
  • 1/4  cup 
    ginger juice, (see Note)
  • 2   tablespoons 
    sugar, preferably superfine bar sugar, plus more for the rims
  •  Strips of 
    lime zest, for garnish
Directions
1.
Mix pomegranate juice, vodka, lime juice, Cointreau (or Grand Marnier), ginger juice and sugar in a large pitcher.
2.
For each drink, fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, add 1/2 cup Cosmo mix, and shake until the shaker turns frosty and cold. Dip the rim of a martini (or highball) glass into water and then in sugar (to "sugar the rim"). Strain the drink into the martini glass (or over fresh ice in the highball glass). Garnish with a twist of lime zest, if desired.
Tips:

1.
Note: We use bottled ginger juice (pressed gingerroot) to add the taste of fresh ginger without the work of mincing or grating. Use it to flavor drinks, stir-fries, marinades or anywhere you'd use fresh ginger. Find it in specialty stores or online at gingerpeople.com.
2.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Prepare through Step 1 and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
