Not as actively vile as the Smirnoff Mojito but that is faint praise.

NotesThe designation Pomegranate Martini is a misnomer. Martinis contain gin not vodka. This would be closer to a cocktail. Given the fact they use a Meyer Lemon liqueur and vodka it sounds like they were attempting a variation of a Cosmopolitan.

AppearanceHazy red color, trying to look like those synthetic fruit juices kids drink? On pouring bears a scary resemblance to Robitussin, or some other cherry cough syrup.

First Impression: Cough syrup or “lite” industrial sanitizer / air freshener notes with wood alcohol / methanol overtones. Medicine like quality to it.

Taste: Insipid, sweetish, medicinal, Meyer lemon is no help. Not as actively vile as the Smirnoff Mojito but that is faint praise. Not really pomegranate taste either – nowhere is pomegranate actually listed as an ingrediant – it’s mainly elderberries (much cheaper substitute), which lacks the depth and complexity of pomegranate.

DrinksWhy? Poor watered down imitation of a Cape Codder or Cosmopolitan.

Cigars: White Owl.

Final Thoughts: A pointless waste of money. Obviously trolling for the bottom (if not the underage) tier of drinkers who want some sort of alcoholic Kool-aid than a real drink.

Bottle: Tall glass bottle with angled rounded shoulders. Color of drink is similar to a kids synthetic juice product or medicine.

Web site: URL too complicated and long to post. Does not seem to work anyway. Who knows? Blank page after initial bottle “gif” image.
