It’s POM Summer Menu Series time again!
This week I was charged with making a cocktail and I instantly knew what I wanted to make-a Pomegranate Mojito or what I lovingly named it, a POMijito!
-Muddle together the mint and 1 TBSP of sugar-just enough to get the oils of the mint on the sugar-no need to pulverize it (it’s tempting!)
-Add the mint/sugar mixture to a glass.
-Add remaining sugar, rum, lime juice, and POM Wonderful to the glass and stir well.
-Add ice and top off with 7-Up (or Sprite or Sierra Mist). Garnish with mint (optional).
My sister claims to be a Mojito expert and even did a blind taste testing with multiple friends of 7-Up vs. simple syrup and 7-Up won hands down. I DECLARE that my sister *IS* a Mojito expert. This was awesome. It was very refreshing and just the thing for a 4th of July BBQ-which is exactly what we had.
