Pomegranate ginger beer smash
For one drink
100 ml pomegranate juice
50 ml vodka
66 ml ginger beer (e.g. Fever-Tree)
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1½ tbsp light cane sugar
1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary, rinsed and dried
For the rim of the glass: 1 lemon or lime wedge
Finely chop the rosemary and mix well with the sugar on a flat plate. Take your glass, and rub the rim with the lemon or lime boat, so that the entire rim is smeared in the juice. Now turn the glass upside down and press the rim of the glass into the sugar on the plate and rotate the glass slightly back and forth until the rim is covered with the sugar mix.
Fill about a third of the glass with ice cubes. Carefully pour the pomegranate juice and vodka into the glass (taking care not to touch the sugar rim) and top up with ginger beer. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Enjoy immediately.
Non-alcoholic version: Omit the vodka, and add 33 ml more ginger beer instead, so that the ratio of pomegranate juice to ginger beer is 1:1.
