Pomegranate Cosmopolitan

I just noticed that most of the recipes I've been posting lately have been red.  And the background of this picture is even in red...  Strange.

2 cups vodka
2 cups pomegranate juice
1 cup orange liqueur (such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup simple syrup 
1/3 cup powdered sugar, for rim

Combine vodka, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and simple syrup in a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to use.  Pour the mixture into sugar rimmed martini glasses and serve.  Cheers!

Tips:  To get the sugar to stick to the rim of the glass, dip in water before dipping in sugar.  I meant to use regular sugar and accidentally used powdered, but I actually thought it looked cool, like ice on the glass.  Either would work though.  Enjoy!
