Pomegranate Gimlets

Makes 6 drinks Beginner
  • 1½ cups gin, such as Tanqueray
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice, such as Pom Wonderful
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (6 to 8 limes)
  • ½ cup simple syrup (note page 35)
  • Pomegranate seeds, for garnish
  • 6 lime slices, for garnish

At least one hour before serving, place six martini glasses in the freezer.

Combine the gin, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and simple syrup in a large pitcher. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice and add the drink mixture until the shaker is three quarters full. Shake for a full 15 seconds (it’s longer than you think!). Pour the mixture into the frozen martini glasses and garnish with a teaspoon of pomegranate seeds and a slice of lime. Repeat with the remaining drink mixture and serve ice cold.
