Pomegranate Mojito

You know it is happy hour at our house when the pomegranate mojitos come out.  I’ve made this recipe for the last few years.  Most recently, I made this drink and took it to a 4th of July block party.  It was gone before I could get a second one.

Most mojito’s are made by crushing the mint leaves in the glass.  This is actually made by creating a mint simple syrup.  This is the key to this recipe and on a good note…you won’t be walking around with mint leaves in your teeth.

Mint Simple Syrup

  • 2 cups of fine granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 40 mint leaves

Add all the ingredients to a sauce pan.  Heat over medium heat until sugar has completely dissolved.  Let sit on stove top for about 20 minutes until syrup has cooled.  Strain into a container.  Chill.  Will last a few weeks in fridge.

Pomegranate Mojito

  • 2 cups simple syrup
  • 4 cups rum
  • 4 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 ltr club soda

Combine all the ingredients above into pitcher or punch bowl.  Add ice.  Serve garnished with mint sprigs or lime slices and…Let the party begin.
