It seems that pomegranate martinis are everywhere these days. A while back, when he was obsessed with making them, my friend Gabe taught me his recipe. However I'm kinda martini-ed out and even though it's the middle of winter, I feel like something refreshing and light. So I'm taking a classic mojito recipe and giving it a twist by adding a new flavor, pomegranate juice. To make a pomegranate mojito tonight,
1.5 parts Light rum
1 part Lime juice
1 part Soda water
1 part Pomegranate Juice
A splash of Simple syrup
4 mint leaves, plus more for garnish
- In the bottom of a double old-fashioned glass bruise the 4 mint leaves with the fresh lime juice and simple syrup.
- Add crushed ice then the pomegranate juice and rum.
- Top with a splash of soda and stir. Garnish with the mint sprig.
