Pomegranate Cosmos

From: EatingWell

Make the base for these pomegranate cosmopolitans ahead of time and shake individual cocktails "to order." Or for individual drinks, combine 3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) each pomegranate juice and vodka, 4 teaspoons lime juice, 1 tablespoon Cointreau, 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger juice and 1/2 teaspoon sugar.

Ingredients
2 1/4 cups  pomegranate juice
2 1/4 cups  vodka
1 cup  lime juice
3/4 cup  Cointreau, or Grand Marnier
1/4 cup  ginger juice, (see Note)
2 tablespoons  sugar, preferably superfine bar sugar, plus more for the rims
Strips of  lime zest, for garnish
Directions
1. Mix pomegranate juice, vodka, lime juice, Cointreau (or Grand Marnier), ginger juice and sugar in a large pitcher.
2. For each drink, fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, add 1/2 cup Cosmo mix, and shake until the shaker turns frosty and cold. Dip the rim of a martini (or highball) glass into water and then in sugar (to "sugar the rim"). Strain the drink into the martini glass (or over fresh ice in the highball glass). Garnish with a twist of lime zest, if desired.
Tips:
Note: We use bottled ginger juice (pressed gingerroot) to add the taste of fresh ginger without the work of mincing or grating. Use it to flavor drinks, stir-fries, marinades or anywhere you'd use fresh ginger. Find it in specialty stores or online at gingerpeople.com.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Prepare through Step 1 and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

I make these without the ginger juice and sugared rim, and replace Grand Marnier with Triple Sec with great results...so yummy!
