This cocktail is appropriately festive for this time of year. It can be enjoyed with or without alcohol, and doubled or tripled to fit your crowd size. It’s really refreshing and using limes, mint and pomegranate seeds for garnish will really dress it up for the holidays!
I used this Arctic Chill stainless steel cocktail muddler for this drink. I think that the rubber bottom worked a lot better than the back of a wooden spoon, which had been my go-to muddling method until I got a proper one! This muddler did a MUCH better job of blending everything together so that you really got the flavor of the mint. Plus, the fact that it is stainless steel and rubber makes it very easy to clean.
Pomegranate Lime Coolers, makes 2

Divide mint, lime juice and simple syrup between two glasses. Muddle. Add 1/2 cup pomegranate juice and 1 oz of vodka (if using) to each glass. Top with approximately 1/2 cup club soda in each glass. Stir well.
