Ginger + Pomegranate = a combination that dreams are made of

No, really.

While I’d sadly never tried this combo before this year, I’m definitely going to be enjoying it all season long… and for seasons to come.

Something about the natural spice of ginger just melds so well with the tart/sweetness of the pomegranate.

A few months back, I was offered the opportunity to try out two new flavors of DRY Sparkling. As a fan of sparkling sodas for mixed drinks, I thought it would be a fun collaboration, so I jumped on it!

When we learned about the flavors we’d get to test out, The Limited Edition Ginger DRY Sparkling sounded intriguing to me. In fact, I knew it would be delicious in a twist on the classic Moscow Mule. (You know, since I like twists on a classic mule.)

And y’all are lucky today because not only do I have a delicious twist on a seasonal mule for you, but several of my friends have made dishes and cocktails for us to (virtually) sip and nibble upon, too.

Additionally, I’ve got a delicious DRY Sparkling giveaway that includes this Ginger DRY Sparkling, another flavor and more goodies!

This Ginger Pomegranate Mule is utterly delightful.

The pomegranate is both tart and sweet. The Ginger DRY Sparkling adds spice and boldness to the drink. The homemade ginger simple syrup adds a shot of sweet. And the vodka adds the booze factor to this new favorite cocktail.

The best part? If you’re not into booze, simply skip it! This drink is delicious either way.

Recipe type: Cocktail
Makes: 1 cocktail
Ingredients
Ginger Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2” piece of fresh ginger root, peeled
Ginger Pomegranate Mule
  • 2 oz. 100% pomegranate juice
  • 4 oz. Ginger DRY Sparkling
  • 1 ½ oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. ginger simple syrup
  • Ice
Instructions
Make the Ginger Simple Syrup
  1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the water and sugar over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the peeled ginger, and bring to a simmer.
  3. When the sugar has completely dissolved into the water, remove from the heat.
  4. Let the mixture steep for 30 minutes, then remove the ginger and store in the refrigerator until time to serve.
Make the Ginger Pomegranate Mules
  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the pomegranate juice, vodka, ginger simple syrup and ice.
  2. Pour into copper mugs over more ice.
  3. Top with the Ginger DRY Sparkling.
  4. Enjoy immediately!
Notes
The simple syrup should make enough to mix 7-8 Ginger Pomegranate Mules, depending on how much liquid dissolves. The recipe can easily be doubled.

Likewise, the Ginger Pomegranate Mules can be doubled or tripled in the same cocktail shaker.
