Ginger Pomegranate Bourbon Cocktail
Perfectly festive, this ginger pomegranate bourbon cocktail is fantastic for the holiday season! Filled with pomegranate juice, ginger beer and spiced simple syrup, it’s fresh and fun.
I’m cramming in one more festive holiday cocktail before New Year’s Eve. Just in case you are in need of a little boozy inspiration for the big night.
I’m calling it the “big” night but I should also throw it out there that I’m probably the lamest person ever when it comes to NYE. Although this year we do actually have plans that involve other people. Shocking, I know.
Some of our friends are coming over to our house for the evening. So according to my husband I’m not allowed to wear pajamas all night because, you know, that would be weird. Sad face. Kidding, kidding.
I am actually very excited since we were out of town for a solid week or so for Christmas and I haven’t seen all my lovely friends in what feels like ages.
So we celebrate. With champagne! And maybe a ginger bourbon cocktail?
Wintery. Festive. Fun.
And! I was allowed to use the “good” bourbon when I tested this recipe out for you.
You see, my father-in-law was “outraged” when he found out that I use my husband’s bourbon (you know, the good stuff he likes to drink) when I bake or cook.
Like for these caramels. Totally worth it. He tends to disagree with me on this point.
So he bought me a cheap bottle of bourbon that I’m supposed to use when I make recipes. I thought it was a gag gift but I’m pretty sure he was dead serious. Bourbon is important business after all.
So don’t worry, I was given the all clear to use the good kind this time since this is a drink. Although I feel like I maybe made the bourbon all girly here. But I’m going with it. It’s still a drink.

I liked this best with 4 ounces of the ginger beer, but my husband liked it with 2 ounces. I’m a bit of a wuss with drinks with hard liquor so take that as you will!
