This Pomegranate Fizz Cocktail is pleasantly refreshing. Smooth and just sweet enough to get you keeping a jug of pomegranate juice in the fridge from now on.
Can I be on strike? The tree has already come down, the decorations away, my local gym suddenly packed with New Years Eve resolution-ers who I truly hope make it more than a few weeks. I’ve seen Valentine’s decorations on display and Easter candy end caps (seriously… Easter people? It’s January. We all know those Cadbury eggs aren’t making it to no basket.) And I realized as I look around my jingle-stripped house that I wasn’t ready to pack up the Santas and tinsel quite yet. I wasn’t ready to start the to-do lists and the 2014 projects and plans. I just want to spend a little more time enjoying the holidays.
So as my pitcher of pomegranate awesomeness sits in the fridge for me alone, I am wondering if next year I need to get hohoho-d sooner, or if I need to take a step back and sit down for a few minutes longer, or if maybe my celebrating will be done a week or two after everyone else id done, when I can sit back and savor it.
This Pomegranate Fizz should have been up a week ago, for New Years, on a table packed for a party (well, the one it’s sitting on, the pictures just didn’t come in time) as a fantastic cocktail for you and your friends to enjoy.

Rum is good for all your ails 🙂
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup cranberry simple syrup
- 1 cup rum
- 4 cups cranberry ginger ale
- orange slices, cranberries, or pomegranate seeds for garnish
- In a large pitcher or punch bowl, stir together the pomegranate juice, simple syrup, and rum over ice.
- Ladle or pour into individual glasses and top off with cranberry ginger ale to fill. (if serving punch style, I would just add the cranberry ginger ale to the bowl).
- Garnish with desired fruits.
