Pomegranate Gin Cocktail

Pomegranate Gin Cocktail

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)

2 servings

Ingredients:

–   4 ounces chilled gin

–   1 orange (juiced)

–   ½ lemon (juiced)

–   ¼ cup pomegranate syrup

–   4 ice cubes

–   pomegranate seeds (optional garnish)

Directions:

  1. 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.

Tips:

  1. I used Hendrick’s gin. But Tanqueray is probably the best fit.
  2. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, just mix everything in a pitcher or bowl.

      Thank you Kelly! The seeds make the drink look so cool! After spending a good amount of time to make the syrup, it is better to find as many ways as I can to use it all. :P

      Thanks a lot, Anne. That color makes the drink so irresistible. Even though I don’t drink much usually, I took a sip again and again.

    ooooo yummy! I’ve never actually seen pomegranate syrup, I will have to keep an eye out for it!

      You can make the syrup yourself. The recipe link is in my post above. If not, you should be able to find them in big stores that sell alcohol, like BevMo!. I think you can also get them from Williams Sonoma and amazon.
