  • Fresh lime juice
  • Gin - We love Empress 1908 gin, it's our preferred gin. It's a botanical gin with a slightly floral flavor, made in small batches in copper pots. Dry gins work best for this recipe.
  • Pomegranate juice
  • Ice cubes for the glass and shaker
  • Ginger beer
  • Garnishes - Pomegranate seeds (arils), a rosemary sprig, and lime wedges or a lime wheel make for the perfect garnish on this co*cktail.

✨Substitutions & variations

Here are a few suggestions on additional flavors to try, or simple variations to this recipe.

  • Swap the citrus juice - If you prefer, you can use lemon juice, blood orange juice, or even grapefruit juice in this co*cktail.
  • Swap ginger beer for soda water, seltzer water, or club soda if you prefer something less sweet. Keep in mind, you may want to add a little simple syrup for a touch more sweetness in the drink depending on your tastes.
  • Low carb co*cktail - Simply use diet ginger beer to make this drink low carb.
  • Add tonic water for a distinct bitter flavor instead of the sweet and spicy flavor ginger beer provides.
  • Swap ginger beer for ginger ale - It won't have the same punchy ginger flavor, but it will still add some nice sweetness and fizz.
  • Stronger co*cktail - If you like your drink a little stronger, add 2 ounces of gin instead of 1.5 ounces.
  • Sweeter drink - Love a sweet drink? Add this drink to a high ball glass so you can add more ginger beer.

🔪Prep work

  • Juice the limes.
  • Remove the fresh pomegranate arils from the fruit.
  • Measure out the remaining ingredients, except for the ginger beer. Keep the ginger beer container closed so it doesn't become flat.

💭Frequently Asked Questions

How to store the leftovers?

This drink is best enjoyed right away, and we don't recommend making it in advance. However, if you need to save leftovers, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Do not freeze. Please note that the ginger beer will become very flat, and the ice will melt in the drink, watering it down.

How to make a large batch:

If serving a crowd, grab a punch bowl or large pitcher. Add in lime juice, pomegranate juice, and gin. For a festive look, add in pomegranate arils, fresh lime slices, and small sprigs of rosemary. Stir to combine, and store in the fridge until it's time to serve, up to 24 hours in advance.

When it's time to serve, add ice to the bowl or pitcher, followed by ginger beer. Give it a quick stir, and ladle into ice-filled glasses. Enjoy!
