Happy Holidays: Festive Ballantyne Pomegranate Martini

Happy New Year!

Sometimes a parent just wants to have some adult time. I was recently with family at The Ballyntine in Charlotte, NC and during dinner had to try their famous Ballantyne Martini. It's not really a martini but looks like one.

Here is the recipe to get you in the holiday spirit.

THE BALLANTYNE 12
1 oz Pearl Pomegranate Vodka

1/2 oz Malibu Coconut Rum 
splash of Pomegranate juice
muddled raspberries
shake vigorously
serve as a martini
