Slicing the Lime
Lime juice offers a tangy, yet sweet flavor that complements the ginger in this recipe well. The juice from a quarter of a lime is plenty to start with for one drink – it doesn’t look like much, but more juice will be released as the ingredients get muddled together. Don’t forget to slice a piece of lime for garnish!
Preparing the Ginger
Cutting the Pomegranate
If you want to skip the ginger muddling or grating, an easy alternative is to use diet ginger ale instead of plain seltzer. Add a squeeze of lime juice and your garnish. It won’t be pink, but this drink is still tasty and easy to prepare if every inch of your kitchen is being used to prepare your holiday dinner.
This drink doesn’t have to be limited to the holidays – you can can swap out pomegranate for whichever fruit may be in season, such as blackberries or cherries in the summer.
