Pomegranate-Mint Fizz
So you didn’t make a mint at The Game of Life and retire to Millionaire Estates? No worries,
you can get a dose of the green stuff here. Refreshing, colorful, and quick to make, this
cocktail has easy-breezy flavors that all your guests will love.

3 cups pure pomegranate juice
14

⁄ cup loosely packed mint leaves

1 cup currant vodka or other berry
vodka
34

⁄ cup plain seltzer or sparkling
water

14

⁄ cup simple sugar syrup (page 9)

Mint sprigs, for garnish

About 1 hour before serving, pour the pomegranate juice into
a cocktail pitcher. Rub the mint leaves between the palms of your
hands for a few seconds and add them to the juice. Stir to mix
and refrigerate.
Just before serving, add the vodka, seltzer, and simple syrup
to the pitcher and stir to mix. Half-fill 8 tumblers with ice, pour
the fizz over (through a small sieve to hold back the mint leaves, if
desired), and garnish with mint sprigs.
MAKES 8 COCKTAILS
▲ Double or triple all the ingredients, refrigerating the extra to the refill pitcher as
needed.
▼ Halve all the ingredients.

Combine the pomegranate juice and mint up to 4 hours ahead; finish just
before serving.
