Pomegranate Ginger Fizz Cocktail

I had another cocktail planned for this part of the meal, but it turned out that I didn't actually have any of the ingredients like I thought I did. I made this cocktail using ingredients that we already had in our kitchen and I think it turned out pretty well. I did free pour the ingredients, but I tried to properly estimate them for you so that you can replicate the drink.

1.) Pomegranate Arancini with Goat Cheese Fonduta

A Vegetarian & Cooking! original.

-¾ cup sugar
-¾ cup water
-1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
-2 ounces pomegranate juice
-2 ounces Triple Sec
-1 cup chilled Ginger Beer
-4 mint springs

Bring sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Add a few tablespoons of simple syrup to each glass, one ounce pomegranate juice, one ounce Triple Sec and then top off with ginger beer. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and mint springs.  


I thought this turned out pretty well considering it's not what I intended on making. If you want to make this drink stronger you could sub our gin or vodka for the Triple Sec. I wanted to keep this drink pretty light, so the lower alcohol Triple Sec did the trick. The mix of pomegranate and orange is nice and the mint springs help make it a little more festive.
