Pomegranate Gingertini

Pomegranate Gingertini | TeaspoonofSpice.com

As we count the days until 2013, here’s a drink that’s worthy of New Year’s Eve celebrations (or even this weekend if you want to take it for a test drive.)

This year, I treated myself to a bottle of Domaine De Canton - the ginger liqueur from France and served these Pomegranate Gingertinis at our Christmas dinner. The concoction was inspired by a recipe photo in the December issue of Philadelphia magazine for the Honeybell, a gingery cocktail delight created by local restaurateur Mitch Prensky.

I really have developed a new love for all things ginger this year (case in point: Ginger Pear Applesauce, Ginger Carrot & Sweet Potato Bisque, Sesame Ginger Pickled Cucumbers, Ginger Lemongrass Fizz.) My new favorite “adult soda” is Reed’s Extra Ginger Beer (I get it at Trader Joe’s) which I used to top off these drinks.

Pomegranate Gingertini

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce ginger liqueur (like Domaine de Canton)
  • 1 ounce vodka or raspberry vodka
  • 1 ounce sparkling pomegranate juice
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds

Directions

  1. Mix ginger liqueur, vodka and pomegranate juice and pour into a glass. Top with ginger beer. Add two ice cubers and pomegranate seeds.

Truth be told, the Canton ginger liqueur is also fantastic when simply mixed with bubbly Prosecco – which may in fact be our New Year’s Eve drink this year – for our wild & crazy evening of having the neighbors over, ordering Chinese food and watching Anderson & Kathy on CNN.

Do you have a favorite drink (besides Champagne) for New Year’s Eve? Any fun plans for December 31st?

 Wishing all our readers and fellow bloggers a very happy and healthy 2013!

  1. mmmm. This sounds very tasty. I made a holiday batch of Cranberry Liqueur (Cooking Light – December 2003) and I like to mix that with orange juice for my holiday drinks. I think I’ll have to try it with ginger.

  2. Clearly I need to come celebrate with you this new years eve :-) Love this ginger laced cocktail!!! Ginger liqueur sounds delish, and you know Iove ginger beer just as much as you, although i am thinking of trying this with Gingerade Kombucha. What do you think??? Wishing you and your family a healthy, happy, and delicious new year!!!
