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.

- 1/4 cup pomegranate arils
- 3-4 fresh mint leaves
- 3/4 cup ginger beer
Muddle (aka smash until fragrant and juicy) the pomegranate arils and mint. Add the ice, and top with ginger beer. Garnish with more mint and pomegranate arils before serving cold.
more non-alcoholic drinks (that you could spike if you wanted to)
