This light and refreshing gin cocktail is sweetened with pomegranate juice and spicy ginger beer. The ultimate crowd-pleasing cocktail recipe for entertaining!
With the holiday season right around the corner, I am always on the search for crowd-pleasing cocktail recipes.
Moscow mules are very popular and for good reason: they’re perfectly balanced with just the right amount of sweetness, spiciness, tanginess and effervescence. Since pomegranate is in season in the winter, I decided to add it to the cocktail for a pop of tartness and beautiful color.
To make it easy and reduce stress this holiday season, I love using grocery home delivery to cut down on my shopping time. In addition to all the fresh groceries, I can also get accessories/homeware delivered to my door including this beautiful copper muddler.
For effervescence and a slight spicy kick, I add both ginger beer and club soda to the cocktail along with a splash of pomegranate juice.
The end result is a perfectly balanced cocktail that will have your guests begging for the recipe.
No forks required.
Pomegranate Moscow Mule
- 2 limes (halved and quartered)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ¼ cup mint leaves
- 6 ounces gin (I like Long Road Distillers)
- 4 ounces pomegranate juice
- 1 cup pomegranate seeds
- 12 ounces ginger beer
- 8 ounces club soda
- Place lime wedges, sugar and mint leaves in a large pitcher and carefully mash together using a muddler. Add gin, pomegranate juice and seeds, ginger beer and club soda and stir well. Divide between four glasses filled with ice. Garnish with extra lime, mint and pomegranate seeds before serving.
