Day 50 – Pomgranade Cocktail

Day50

Happy Day 50 Herbivores!!

Today is the 50th day of my 100 Days Project, which means I am half way through. To celebrate  . . . I figured a cocktail recipe was in order.

As I mentioned in my Day 9: French 75 post, gin is my favorite spirit, and I figured I would look for a cocktail that would help use the leftover pomegranate molasses from my Day 46: Pomegranate Glazed Tempeh recipe.  I found a recipe for a gin and pomegranate cocktail on the Fisher & Pykel: Our Kitchen blog . . . PERFECT!!!

I invited a few friends and colleagues around to help me celebrate Day 50, and come up with a good name for the cocktail. To be honest, I thought “Gin and Pomegranate Cocktail” was a bit boring; The Pomgranade was born. The sweet and tart flavors of pomegranate molasses and lime make this cocktail very easy to drink, but the gin eventually catches up with you . . . BOOM!!

If limes are out of season and ridiculously expensive, you can also use lime cordial, but then omit the sugar. If doing this substitution, I recommend Bickford’s Lime Juice Cordial, because it is not as overly sweet as some of them can be.
