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.
