Martini Time Again!!!

Came up with a new one for my friend's b-day:
I'm having a bartender friend make it for her tomorrow night when she goes out, as a surprise:
1 oz Grand Marnier
1 oz. Raspberry Vodka
1 oz. Pommegranate Juice
1/2 oz. Roses Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
shake with ice, strain and serve in sugar-rimmed martini glass, and float a lime zest.

Looks nice (though seems a bit sweet) but it's not a martini, that's for sure.

What's your friend's name?

Rachel...calling it a Rachtini!!! I know these aren't the classic martinis, but these "designer" ones around here, they serve it a martini glass usually for the wonderful women folk, and charge overpriced for it!!!

Not a traditional martini, but your invention really sounds good. I have to remember to check back in here to see how it went over for you all.

Classic martinis for me have to be vodka rather than gin with the vermouth, your friend's lucky you're this thoughtful.
