Notes

Tips for making the pomegranate gin cocktail:
  • I always recommend using the best alcohol you can afford, but with a mixed drink like this one, a mid-range gin is perfectly fine.
  • Any pomegranate juice will do, but I enjoy and recommend Pom brand.
  • I use this gadget [insert hyperlink] to juice my fruit.
  • Before juicing the lemon, roll it between your hands or place it on a flat surface and roll it gently with your palm to release the juices.
  • If you like a fizzy drink, add club soda after you pour out the cocktail, which will give you a little bubbly!
