Shaken not Stirred: Pearls of Baku


For this episode of Shaken not Stirred we are visiting the newly opened Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers, Azerbaijan. The history of Azerbaijan is inseparably linked to the cultivation of pomegranates and this refreshingly pink cocktails celebrates this to a T!

You will need for one cocktail:

  • Ice
  • 75ml vodka
  • 75ml pomegranate juice
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar
  • 1 slice fresh lime


  • Combine  the ice, vodka, and pomegranate juice in a cocktail shaker, then squeeze the juice of the lime into the mixture
  • Shake well and set aside
  • Wet the edge of a martini glass with the lime wedge and dip edge of glass into icing sugar
  • Strain the pink infusion into the prepared martini glass, garnish with pearls of pomegranate and enjoy while reading the myth of Persephone….
