Pomegranate Martini Recipe

UPDATE:

No more need to speculate. Bonefish Grill has released their pomegranate martini recipe. [Thanks to Kai for posting the link in the comments.]

Ingredients
* 2 oz Vodka (use your favorite brand)
* 2 oz POM Wonderful Pomegranate Mango juice
* 0.50 oz Simple Syrup
* Frozen red grapes

Directions
1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin and strain into a frozen martini glass.
2. Garnish with frozen red grapes.

For those of you crazy about Bonefish Grill’s yummy pomegranate martini (I know Jan, Darcy and I all are), here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
1.5 oz Fris Vodka
.75 oz Monin Pomegranate Syrup
.75 oz Monin Mango Syrup

Place all ingredients into a shaker tin filled with ice. Cover and shake vigorously 20 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with 3 skewered grapes placed on edge of glass.

Darcy and Jan both have attempted this. They came close but could not completely duplicate the taste. Darcy said it might be because she is using different brands of syrup.

You should be able to find Fris Vodka at any decent liquor store. This brand is relatively easy to find. The challenging part is finding Monin syrups. I’m not sure where you can find them at your local grocery store or supermarket, but Monin syrups can be purchased online for about $6 per 750 ML bottle from Lollicup, CoffeeAm, Barista Pro Shop, and other similar vendors. You may be able to find some on Amazon also; although, these may be through third-party sellers.

Good luck and happy mixing!

    I asked a sever at Bonefish how to make these, and he said all of what you mentioned PLUS you have to let the mixture sit with chunks of mango in it for two days. It soaks up the vodka & expels it back out, creating a smooth taste.

    As above, I asked the bartender what their secret is to the yummiest martini I’ve ever had…and I’ve had a few…they infuse the vodka for two days with Mango…she did not mention using any syrups but using Pom juice instead…

    I am friends with the bartender at my local Bonefish and she told me that they use Pom juice, mango nectar & Fris vodka. Not syrups.

    Thank you so much for all the info. No wonder we couldn’t replicate the flavor. Do you know if it is a specific brand of Pom juice they use?

    Pom Wonderful is what they use here. And you can find mango nectar in the ethnic section of the grocery store. Don’t forget the frozen grapes! I like to add pomegranite seeds to mine as well…

    You will not be able to duplicate the martini with the fris and the monin syrups. I tried to with the Fris vodka and the monin syrups, but the syrups were too sweet and the vodka to harsh. I will try the other suggestions of infusing the vodka with mango and the pom with mango nectar. Thanks for those suggestions.

    Just like the rest of you, my husband and I absolutely love Bonefish Pomegranate Martini. I tried the recipe posted on their site using POM Wonderful juice. It is NOT what they use. The drink was very bitter and did not even taste like the one we all love! Do not waste your money on this expensive POM juice. They post a random recipe for a Pomegranate Martini, but it is not a Bonefish Martini. After my experience using that, I ordered the Monin syrup online. I got it today by mail and tested the mix. I am 100% certain this is the right mix. It tastes just like the famous martini but yet missing a little touch. Next I will follow Allison’s instructions above using mango and infusing the mix for 2-3 days. I am sure this is the secret to the perfect Bonefish Pomegranate Martini. Thanks!

    Lori,

    I had originally posted a recipe using the Monin syrups, but updated the post with the recipe from the Bonefish web site. Let us know what your results are.. I am very curious!
