Holiday Cocktail: Pomegranate Gin Sling

With the holidays quickly apporaching and the Christmas parties about to begin, I thought it would be good to share a few holiday cocktails.

Pomegranate Gin Sling
A classic gin sling is dressed for festive parties when made with seasonal pomegranate juice and decorated with crimson pomegranate fruit. Both simple syrup and agave syrup are widely available at liquor stores. To make your own simple syrup, boil 2 parts sugar to 1 part water, stirring just until sugar dissolves; reduce until thickened. Cool before using. Recipe courtesy of Cooking Light.

  • 1/4 cup gin

  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice, chilled

  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup or simple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

  •  8 pomegranate seeds

  • 2 lime slices

  • Preparation:
    1. Combine first 4 ingredients; divide evenly between 2 chilled glasses; divide seeds between glasses. Garnish with lime slices.
