Make it a safe and sane season with WHOLE Pomegranate Cocktail! This incredible non-alcoholic libation takes just a little prep time to create the base syrup, but the spicy blast on your palate is well worth your time. It starts with a homemade grenadine syrup. Here’s the recipe:
WHOLE Spicy Grenadine Syrup
1 cup pomegranate juice; 1/2 cup brown sugar; 1 quarter-sized disk of fresh ginger; 4 whole cloves; 2 whole allspice pods, 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel.
Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. (Be sure to use a non-reactive pan such as glass or stainless steel.) Boil over high heat, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain into a jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid. This delicious syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
WHOLE Pomegranate Cocktail
Pour two tablespoons of WHOLE Spicy Grenadine Syrup into a wine glass or champagne flute and top with ginger ale. Garnish with a few pomegranate seeds and a slice of orange. Salut!
