The Story Behind The Pomegranate Mojito

I hate when great cocktails get limited to certain times of year. It gives me great pleasure to take an out-of-season drink and tweak the recipe a little to bring something new to the tradition.

The Mojito is a classic that certainly holds its own as a crowd-pleaser but, depending where you live, they tend to be served only a few months out of every year. With the simple addition of pomegranate juice, plus a beautiful seasonal garnish, this classic, summery rum cocktail suddenly seems perfect for holiday parties and winter sipping.


  • 2 ounces rum
  • ¾ ounce lime juice
  • ¾ ounce pomegranate juice
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • 1-2 ounces soda
  • 6-7 leaves mint


  1. Combine rum, lime juice, pomegranate juice, simple syrup, and mint in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake hard to chill and combine.
  3. Fill a collins glass with crushed ice.
  4. Finely strain contents of your shaker over ice to remove broken mint.
  5. Top with soda water.
  6. Garnish with mint and powdered sugar.
  7. Enjoy!
