Pomegranate, Lime + Ginger Mocktail

Pomegranate + Ginger Mocktail - offbeat + inspired-2

A few weeks ago, I co-hosted a baby shower for a friend. Pre-pregnancy, the guest of honor and I often enjoyed hanging out and talking over a bottle of wine, but considering it was her baby shower (and I’m also pregnant), wine had to take a backseat.

Celebrations like baby showers deserve a festive drink, so I came up with a simple mocktail recipe that can be scaled down for 1 person or made for a crowd. And with Christmas and New Year’s Eve around the corner, I don’t have to settle for sipping a boring beverage when everyone else is toasting with a glass of champagne or a cocktail. I will be celebrating with a tasty mocktail in hand!

(Of course, if you’re not avoiding alcohol at the moment, feel free to add a shot of vodka to this recipe.)

Cheers!

Pomegranate, Lime + Ginger Mocktail

1 part cranberry juice (100%, no sugar added – not cranberry juice cocktail)
2 parts pomegranate juice (100% pomegranate juice)
3 parts ginger beer (I used Reed’s Jamaican style ginger beer)
Squeeze of lime juice (for 1 mocktail, I used the juice from 1 wedge of lime)
Pomegranate seeds or lime wedges for garnish (optional)

Fill glasses partway with ice. Add juices and ginger beer. Stir gently. Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds or lime wedges.

Quick Tip: When I made this on a large scale, I used ginger ale instead of ginger beer (try to find a strong-tasting brand, such as Vernors, if possible.) This way, you can just purchase a 2-liter bottle of ginger ale rather than using small bottles of ginger beer.
