Pomelo Cocktails & August LOL Food Blogger Posts

After my last post, I had a good amount of pomelo syrup left over. What to do?  Cocktails of course!

Pomelo Martini

  • 1 oz of Vodka (preferable from the freezer)
  • 1/2 oz Pomelo Syrup
  • Dash of simple syrup

  • Dip the rim of the glass in the syrup and then into a saucer filled with sugar.
  • Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Shake and pour into glass straining the ice.
  • Garnish with a slice of pomelo or in this case, candied pomelo rinds.

Pomelo Bellini
  • 3 oz Champagne*
  • 1 oz pomelo syrup

  • Pour pomelo syrup into a champagne flute
  • Add the champagne
  • Garnish with a slice of pomelo or in this case, candied pomelo rinds.

*Can substitute prosecco or sparkling water for a nonalcoholic version.
