Pomegranate ginger beer smash

For one drink

Ingredients

  • 100 ml pomegranate juice
  • 50 ml vodka
  • 66 ml ginger beer (e.g. Fever-Tree)
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • Ice cubes

Rosmary sugar

  • 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

Procedure

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.

Rosemary sugar

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.
