Transforming popular, traditional cocktails into something fun and fresh is our favorite kind of makeover—muddle, shake and pour then say hello to our pomegranate mojito recipe!
With the popularity of pomegranate juice, you can find it just about anywhere from your local supermarket to any mega grocery retailer. While actual pomegranate fruit is not required for this recipe, fresh pomegranate seeds make a great garnish in addition to fresh mint and bright green wheels of lime.
There’s nothing to the mixology of our pomegranate cocktail—simply combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker or small pitcher as directed then stir until combined. If you’re serving a crowd, multiply servings accordingly then serve in a pretty pitcher or drink dispenser with all the trimmings!
