As I mentioned last week, I made pomegranate syrup for this cocktail drink. With the dark concentrate syrup, the drink was ruby-red in color and you can barely see through the glass. With some of the floating pomegranate seeds, this drink would be perfect for the upcoming holiday parties. The drink was sweet and tart. It was a bit sweet from the orange juice and a bit tart from the pomegranate syrup and lemon. A great seasonal drink to impress your guests! Cheers!
Pomegranate Gin Cocktail (Adapted from Bobby Flay vs Foodnetwork.com)
- 4 ounces chilled gin
- 1 orange (juiced)
- ½ lemon (juiced)
- ¼ cup pomegranate syrup
- 4 ice cubes
- pomegranate seeds (optional garnish)
- In a cocktail shaker, add all ingredients except the pomegranate seeds. Shake and pour into two cocktail glasses. Add a few pomegranate seeds into each glass. Serve.
- I used Hendrick’s gin. But Tanqueray is probably the best fit.
- If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, just mix everything in a pitcher or bowl.
