Recipe

This cocktail is a piece of cake – just mix all of the ingredients together and serve!  Very festive for the holidays.

Start by making a simple syrup: Bring 1/2 cup water and sugar to boil in small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer 5 minutes. Cool syrup completely.

The original recipe also calls for Pomegranate seeds, but honestly, I didn’t see a need to get all “foofy” with this.  Also, I didn’t really see what they would add other than increased cost.

Combine ingredients and add enough simple syrup to sweeten the drink to your liking.

Serve & Enjoy!

Happy New Years!
