Pom Kiss

Standard

This recipe calls for Pama Pomegranate  liqueur specifically — but honestly, I haven’t tried any other Pom liqueur, so if you have a different favorite, just stick with your fave.

It’s one of my favorite combinations of flavors in a fruity cocktail — pom, grapefruit, ginger ale, lime, and just a whisper of cranberry —  and it’s equally good served over the crushed ice from a shaker, or whirred into a frosty frozen drink in your blender.  Either way — it makes a tall, icy drink that’s perfect for a late summer afternoon!

4 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with pulp
1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz unsweetened cranberry juice
2 oz ginger ale (Reed’s extra strong works really well if you like lots of ginger!)
2 oz Pama Pom liqueur
1/2 oz vodka
4 drops cranberry bitters
mixture (1/2 and 1/2)  of salt and sugar to rim glass
1 c crushed ice

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously, then pour into a  rimmed, tall, 16 oz glass and garnish with a wedge of lime floated in the center of the glass!
