Picante Pomegranate

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

This Martini is a seasonal customer favorite at The Broadmoor’s onsite French bistro Summit in Colorado Springs— it's always on the menu during the holidays. Like a Christmas cactus in a glass, it’s made with tequila, pomegranate juice, Pama liqueur and lemon juice. The tart, tangy cocktail gets an extra kick from black pepper simple syrup and a Campari-sugar rim. Its bittersweet flavor is such an addicting tongue-teaser, you’ll have trouble stopping at one.
