Pomegranate Mojito

I never thought of making a Pomegranate Mojito before, but I bet it’s good. This recipe from Katherine Martinelli turns white rum, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and mint into an intriguing-sounding drink–especially right now, when pomegranates are in season.

Here’s the recipe:

Pomegranate Mojito
(Makes one drink)

Ingredients:

    1-1 1/2 oz white rum
    1 oz sugar or simple syrup
    Juice of 1 lime
    2 to 3 sprigs fresh mint
    1 oz pomegranate juice
    Pomegranate seeds
    Club soda
    Ice


Directions:

Select a big glass with room for plenty of ice. Put rum, lime juice, simple syrup and pomegranate juice in glass. Mix well. Taste, and add more sugar or lime juice if needed. Add some crushed lime peel if you like. Crush mint leaves from one sprig, add to drink and mix. Add a handful of pomegranate seeds. Add a one-second to second-and-a-half pour of club soda. Top glass with ice. Garnish with remaining mint leaves.
