Pomegranate Martinis are known by many names; Pamatini, Pomegranate-tini, and even Pearl-tini when they were initially introduced. However, some have even taken to calling it the royal name “the nectar of the gods”, since the pomegranate fruit played such a prominent role in the world of the ancient Greek Gods.

This sweet and sour cocktail has a beautiful pink colour and a light, refreshing taste. Its description makes it seem unsurprising that the Pomegranate-tini is a women’s favourite, particularly in Western countries. When made the right way, using the most traditionally-used ingredients, the Pomegranate-tini is the perfect blend of sweet, sour, and tangy zests.

The first known Pomegranate-tini was made with Pearl Pomegranate Vodka, along with Arrow Triple Sec. To this concoction, a standard pomegranate-flavoured syrup was added along with either pomegranate of cranberry juice to mask the strong flavours of the spirits, finished off with a dash of salt or lemon to make the sweetness less overwhelming.

Although the origin of the Pomegranate-tini is not particularly prominent, this cocktail is considered to be almost as old as most other flavoured martinis. When called Pamatini, the martini gets its name from its typically used main ingredient, PAMA liqueur, which is the most well-known pomegranate-flavoured alcohol.
