About this Cocktail

This cocktail could be categorized as a guilty pleasure since the flavor is akin to cotton candy.

In an effort to make it less so, it includes pomegranate extract rather than grenadine.

For a sweeter version, increase the share of Stoli Vanil and/or use Rose's grenadine or similar sugary.

  • 0.75 oz Stoli Vanil
  • 0.75 oz vodka
  • 1.5 oz pineapple juice
  • <0.25 oz pomegranate extract (Hidden Star Orchards uses here)

Combine all of the ingredients except the pomegranate extract. Shake well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. If you don't like it frothy on top try a slow pour from the tin.

Add the pomegranate extract to the glass. It will sink to the bottom. Then insert a small bar spoon (ala those Japanese bar spoons) to the bottom of the cocktail glass and spin it to lightly combine some of the extract.
