Pomegranate Ginger Mojito

Prep

Total

Yield 8 Servings

Ingredients

4 cups Pomegranate juice, chilled

1.5 cups Light Rum (I  like Cruzan Rum)

1/4 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed (about 3 limes)

1 cup mint leaves, divided

sliced limes for garnish

Ginger Mint Simple Syrup:

1 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

1 large (about 4-5 inch)  knob of ginger, washed and cut into thin slices

3/4 cup tightly packed mint leaves

Instructions

Make the Ginger Mint Simple Syrup:

  1. Place the water, sugar, and ginger  in a pot on high heat. Stir so the sugar dissolves and bring to a boil. Let this mixture boil gently for a few minutes and then turn the heat to low, cover the put and let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Take the lid off the put, turn the stove off, throw in 3/4 cup of mint leaves, stir well  and let this mixture sit until it is completely cooled.
  3. Once the mixture is cooled, strain it so the mint and ginger is discarded and you only have syrup left. 

Making a Batch of Pomegranate Ginger Mojitos:

In a large pitcher or drink dispenser, combine the Pomegranate juice, rum, lime juice, ginger mint simple syrup, 1/2 cup mint leaves,  and mix well. You can let this entire mixture chill in the refrigerator for a few hours or even over night.

How to Serve:

Fill each glass  full of ice, pour in the pomegranate rum mixture upto 3/4 of the way, and fill the remaining 1/4 of the cup with club soda, top with fresh mint leaves and give it a gentle stir. Top with a lime slice/wedge and serve with a straw!
