Anastasia

2 oz Ginger Vodka
1 oz Pomegranate juice, POM Wonderful
1 oz Triple sec, Cointreau
1 oz Lemon juice
12 oz Simple syrup
Instructions
Shake long and hard (at least 20 seconds) over ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with a thin strip of lemon peel and a lump of crystallized ginger Lemon peel & lump of crystalized ginger, Shake, Straight Up
Notes
Infuse 750ml of vodka (I think Smirnoff 80-proof is ideal for this application, though I've also used Skyy to good effect) with 1/2 cup of peeled, grated fresh ginger for 3-5 days in a sealed container in the fridge, shaking occasionally. Strain out the ginger with a fine sieve and/or a paper coffee filter.

We made an almost identical

We made an almost identical drink at the restaurant and subbed cucumber syrup instead and called it a Snap Dragon.....but the proportions on this drink make for one heck of a large cocktail! Obviously aimed at the Cosmo crowd.
