Pomegranate juice acts as the base of this brighty, zesty drink. Top it off, if you like, with a dash of bitters.

Serves 1

  • 2 ounces POM Wonderful pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup or honey syrup  
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice (from 1 orange)
  • 4 to 6 drops Angostura orange bitters (optional)
  • Pomegranate seeds, lime wheel, sprig of rosemary or mint, or edible flower, for garnish

1. Combine pomegranate juice, ginger, lime juice, simple syrup, and orange juice in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker. Fill halfway with ice and shake well. Double strain (using a cocktail strainer plus a small kitchen strainer) into a cocktail glass (martini glass or rocks glass) with ice. Add drops of orange bitters if desired.

2. Garnish with a small handful of pomegranate seeds. Top with a sage flower, mint sprig, or lime wheel.
