Pomegranate Rosemary Fizz (cocktail)

My husband made this drink for us back in December while trying out recipes to identify our Christmas cocktail for this year.  We really liked it, but it didn’t feel Christmas-y enough.  Instead, we felt it was a good winter cocktail.  The pomegranate feels very seasonal, the color is uplifting, it has just the right about of herby-ness from the rosemary and it tastes light and refreshing.  It’s the perfect cocktail to brighten up a winter evening!!

The Recipe (makes 1 serving)

1 1/2 oz Pomegranate Juice
1 oz Gin
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 TBSP Rosemary Simple Syrup *
Club soda (about 3 oz)
Rosemary sprigs, Pomegranate arils and/or orange wedge, for garnishClub Soda (3 oz)

*(To make Rosemary Simple Syrup – combine 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 sprig of rosemary.  Heat to dissolve sugar and then let sit to cool).

Combine the first 4 ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake well.  Strain into a rocks or martini glass.  Top off with cold club soda and garnish.

Make yourself one tonight and enjoy!!!

Cheers!
