Pomegranate martini - Most popular cocktails seriesDeanna’s Recipe

Oprah’s Pomegranate Martinis are a staple in our house on Christmas Eve. They are so delicious and I like to think they might be a little nutritious too!

Servings: Serves 2


  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 2 ounces Absolute Citron vodka or white tequila
  • 1 ounce Cointreau liquor
  • Cup of ice
  • Splash of sparkling water (optional)
  • Squeeze of lemon (optional)


Shake ingredients in a shaker and put in chilled martini glasses. Put pomegranate fruit into glass as garnish.

We love making this Monkey Bread or Cinnamon Breakfast Cake (as we like to call it). The house smells amazing as it bakes away and it’s a cinch to make.


  • 20 Frozen Bread Balls
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • 1-2 Tbsp of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Melted Butter


Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Place the bread balls in a Bundt cake pan. Sprinkle the dry mixture over top. Then pour the melted butter on top. Cover with a cloth and let it sit over night. In the morning, place in the oven and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Try to let it cool slightly before demolishing.
