Ginger, Mint, and Pomegranate Vodka Cocktail

Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1-inch piece ginger, thinly sliced
    1 bunch spearmint
    1/4 cup pomegranate juice
    1 ounce vodka
    1/4 cup sparkling water

Directions

  1. To make simple syrup: In a sauce pot, combine sugar, 1/4 cup water, sliced ginger, and a handful of spearmint leaves. Cook on medium-high heat, allowing sugar to dissolve. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and let ginger and spearmint steep in liquid until cooled to room temperature. Strain cooled liquid into measuring cup, and discard solids.
  2. To make cocktail: Fill a lowball glass with ice. Fill with 2 tablespoons of ginger/spearmint syrup, 1/4 cup pomegranate juice, and 1 ounce of vodka. Top with sparkling water, and garnish with a spearmint sprig.
