How to Make the Ginger Pomegranate Mocktail

To make this specialty mocktail, start by thinly slicing a piece of ginger and adding it to a cocktail shaker with a splash of hot water. Muddle to release the ginger’s flavors. Note: you can substitute real ginger with ginger paste, but I prefer the taste of real ginger. 

Next, add the pomegranate juice, orange juice, and ice, then shake all the ingredients in the cocktail shaker until the outside of the shaker is chilled. Strain the mixture into 2 glasses with fresh ice and top with a splash of sparkling water and stir. If desired, garnish with a rosemary sprig, pomegranate arils, and orange slice.

Recipe Notes: 

  • This recipe is Whole30 friendly
  • For a sweeter mocktail, add a sweetener of choice to the cocktail shaker. Or replace sparkling water with ginger beer or ginger ale.
  • To make this a cocktail, add gin or vodka.
