0 Recipe #95: Pomegranate Mojito

Pin It

A friend recently asked me if I had a recipe for a pomegranate mojito. I told her that even though I didn't know of a recipe off the top of my head that I could probably come up with one and post it on my blog. :)

Since Erik was going to be stopping by the grocery store after work that night anyhow, I asked him to add some POM, a pomegranate, & some limes to the shopping list.....

So, here's the recipe I came up with, which I'd like to dedicate in honor of my friend. :) Of course, I taste-tested it for recipe-posting purposes, and am happy to say that it turned out rather well! Hope that both you and my friend will enjoy it! Cheers!

Pomegranate Mojito

juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp. honey
6 mint leaves
crushed ice
6 Tbsp. pomegranate juice
2 tsp. pomegranate seeds
1 Tbsp. white rum
4 Tbsp. chilled club soda

Directions: In a tall cocktail glass, combine lime juice, honey, and mint leaves, & smash together with a pestle or the back of a spoon. Fill glass half-full with crushed ice, and then pour in pomegranate juice & seeds, rum, & club soda. Stir together well with a spoon, garnish with a sprig of mint &/or a lime wedge, & serve.

Alternate Method: Crush mint with a spoon at the bottom of a tall cocktail glass. In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients except the mint, shake well, & strain pomegranate mixture into the glass. Stir well & serve.

To make this drink non-alcoholic, just serve without the rum, substituting another tablespoon of club soda for the rum. It still tastes really good!

Yield: Serves 1.
