Pomegranate Ginger Beer Mint Sparkler

This pomegranate ginger beer mint sparkler features holiday colors, but tastes delicious any time of the year. #pomegranate #gingerbeer #mint #drinks #nonalcoholic

happy new years!!! it’s a little late by the time you’re probably seeing this post, but my friends and i are sipping on glasses of this pomegranate ginger beer mint sparkler tonight so i’m posting it anyways. it’s tart and fresh and gingery and fizzy, and feels so festive with all that ruby pomegranate and verdant mint. if you’ve never had ginger beer before, now’s the time to try it. it’s ginger ale’s more gingery cousin, and despite the name, it tastes nothing like beer (good thing, bc i have not acquired the taste for beer yet. or ever).

say you want to make your pomegranate ginger beer mint sparkler a bit sweeter: ginger ale or sprite would work well instead of the ginger beer, or you can add liquid sweetener to taste. say you want to spike it: vodka or champagne would be good, or if you want a bit more citrus in your life, triple sec or grand marnier.

Garnish this pomegranate ginger beer mint sparkler with extra pomegranate arils and mint for even more color! #pomegranate #gingerbeer #mint #drinks #nonalcoholic

    1. oooh. haven’t gone to disneyland/dca since october, so i didn’t get to try anything this year, but that’s probably for the best (; disneyland and dca become one big eating adventure when they have seasonal food because i’m too excited lol.

  2. Oh wow, that looks and sounds good!!! – http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

    1. thanks, gingi!! (:

  3. Happy New Year, Heather! What a great idea this is – I love ginger beer! And what better to add than pomegranate! A keeper for sure!

    1. thanks, laura! i love the flavor of ginger, and it’s so fresh and spicy (but not painfully so!) in ginger beer (:

  4. Happy new Year!! This looks so refreshing – I LOVE ginger beer.

    1. thanks, katherine! hope you had a good new years (:

  5. Wow! This drink looks so refreshing! Love that itโ€™s non-alcoholic!

    1. yeah, i love that it’s non-alcoholic, too! it makes it easy to have a non-alcoholic base, and then people can add alcohol as they please (:

  6. Mmmmm! Looks amazing and tasty! *Cheers* ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. cheers to you too, kim!

  7. I love that this looks fancy but is so easy to make. A great beverage for year-round celebrations! Happy 2018!

    1. yes, good for the whole year! anything juicy and sweet/tart (i’m thinking strawberries, raspberries, maybe oranges) would be tasty in place of the pomegranate (:

  8. This drink sounds wonderful and just my kind of thing! Happy New Year, Heather!!

  9. This sounds so refreshing. I even have the arils in the freezer so I am going to make something similar tonight when I get home from work ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. oooh frozen pomegranate arils would be so perfect! then you might not even need ice, and you don’t have to water down your drink (:

  10. That’s a refreshing twist on the regular ginger beer!! Love the fresh flavors you have incorporated in there!! Yummy!

    1. ginger beer is so tasty that i’d happily drink it plain, but this is a fun variation (:

  11. What a dazzler! I love the delightful tingle of ginger beer but you’ve really dressed it up so beautifully here! Very festive and very happy.

    1. oooh yes i love the tingle too! the spicy tingle and the bubbly tingle :3

  12. Fun! Happy new year to you too!
    Looking forward to all your crazy cool recipes this year!
    Hugs,
    Kimberly

    1. thanks, kimberly! hope you had a great holiday season.

  13. Happy New Year Heather!!!
    This looks so refreshing and delicious…perfect for the extremely hot Summer here in South Africa right now. I cannot wait to try !!!

    1. this is super refreshing so i can imagine how good it’d be in the summer!

  14. I love ginger beer! We just bought the triple brew from Trader Joe’s but have yet to open it. Will have to try this twist soon!

    1. oooh i haven’t had the triple brew from tj’s. i used the six pack they sell for these, but i think that’s normal strength ginger beer. a little afraid of the sound of triple brew- it’s bringing memories of biting into big chunks of ginger back lol.

  15. Happy New Year and that sparkle looking gorgeous! Great combination of fruit and herb.

  16. tart, fresh, gingery, and fizzy… Sounds about right!

    1. yes, this drink is definitely all of those things!

  17. Itโ€™s never too late to post an awesome drink recipe! This looks so festive and definitely perfect to share and enjoy with friends! Happy New Year!

    1. yeah, i love how colorful and festive this came out! thanks kelly (:

  18. The mint touch on drinks are always so refreshing! This drink looks awesome to share with friends and family. I’ll have to make up an excuse just to make these! Thanks for sharing!

    1. the mint in here works so well! usually a pretty big fan of mint in my drinks too, but i got chai from a coffee shop once, and they put a few sprigs of mint in. that was a bit much, just maybe (;
