Pomegranate Lychee Martini
Revolution (Downtown Durham)
This attractive drink is made with vodka, pomegranate molasses, and lychee juice. The whole lychee garnish is a great touch. The flavor is very light but nice, with the lychee taking the lead role. Other than a flash of pomegranate, the molasses mainly adds texture to the drink. The combination of ingredients is such that each element merely suggests its presence, which lends the drink a nice subtlety overall, but it could use a little more pizazz.
