November is National Pomegranate Month, so we’re putting this funtastic fruit into a SweetShine cocktail.
What the heck do you do with this thing, though? Let’s explore …
You’ll need a blender, mesh strainer, and container for the juice.
Start by slicing the pomegranate in half, vertically.
Cut into quarters and use your fingers or a spoon to carefully remove the arils. Be sure to get every last one!
Pour arils into a blender, setting a few aside for garnish, and pulse a few times to release juice. Strain into container, pressing arils with a spoon to get all the juice.
To build the cocktail you’ll need:
2 oz gin
3/4 oz pomegranate juice
juice of 1/2 lemon
1-2 oz club soda
In a glass pour 2 oz gin, 1 oz Raspberry Lemon SweetShine, and 3/4 oz pomegranate juice.
Slice a lemon in half, horizontally, and squeeze 1/2 lemon into the cocktail.
Fill glass with ice and stir.
Gently top with club soda and stir again.
Garnish with a fresh sprig of mint and sprinkle a few arils on top.
