Numbers Game: Answer

A pomegranate martini contains 245 calories.

This number applies to all flavored martinis (and cosmopolitans, for that matter).

I find that many people -- even those knowledgeable about nutrition issues -- tremendously underestimate the caloric value of alcoholic drinks.

Consider this: knocking back three of these over the course of a night adds up to almost 750 calories -- that's equivalent to a Big Mac and a side order of Mickey D's small fries.
