Not that I am wishing summer away, but as they say in New England...The fact of the matter is, it is cooling down and clouding up!!!! So we all have to move on from the summer mojitos and fresh berry cocktails. Fall fruits are showing up in the markets so let's take advantage.

Combining fresh pomegranate with the freshest apple juice you can get, creates a unique drink. The Dusk in Eden is a great alternative to the popular Appletini and you don't have the overly sweet apple flavor. The apple is offset by the fresh pomegranate resulting in a SPECTACULAR Martini!

1-1/2 parts "really good" vodka
1 large slice of pomegranate skin before the seeds
1 part apple juice
dash of simple syrup (water and sugar heated to boiling and cooled)
pomegranate seeds for garnish

Muddle together the pomegranate and syrup in a mixing glass or martini shaker
Add the vodka and apple juice and fill with ice
Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass
Garnish with pomegranate seeds

Wonderful on a nice cool evening wrapped in a blanket!
