The Cherry Citrus Cooler

Sweet and sour flavors dominate V Bar’s refreshing cherry citrus cooler. V Bar uses cherry vodka and pomegranate liqueur as the base, then adds vanilla vodka, lemonade and a fresh squeeze of lemon to finish it off.

  • 1 ounce Three Olives cherry vodka
  • 1 ¼ ounces Pama pomegranate liqueur
  • ¼ ounce Stoli vanilla vodka
  • 2 ounces lemonade
  • 1 fresh squeeze of lemon
  • ice

Combine both vodkas, pomegranate liqueur and lemonade in a martini shaker with ice. Shake well, then strain into a glass filled with ice and serve with a fresh squeeze of lemon.

V Bar bartender Danny Phee makes this martini extra sweet for the ladies by rimming the glass with sugar, but adds a masculine touch, too, and serves it James Bond-style, shaken not stirred, in a 10-ounce highball glass.

Now I know, and everyone else at the bar knows, that this girl’s a man—but she’s really pretty with all the surgery and makeup and all. So this guy comes up and he’s talking to her and nobody tells him because he’s just rude to everyone.
