Pomegranate Ginger Ale

I mentioned before, when talking about the infused cranberry vodka, that I was also making pomegranate vodka.  Well, now it’s ready.  I used a small handful of the seeds in the same sized bottle as the cranberry.  I muddled them a bit (that’s the fancy bartender way of saying ‘mushed them up’).  They turned stark white and the vodka is a light pink.  I didn’t have a plan for what to mix it with when I made it, I just had a pomegranate and was excited about infusing vodka.

So when the vodka was ready to use, I wasn’t sure what to do with it.  The hero suggested some ginger ale we had and I thought that was perfect.  It was surprisingly good.  I mean I thought it would be good, but it was really good.  It has a really complex and full flavor.

This recipe makes 2 drinks.
