The pomegranate is an undeniably alluring fruit. While peeling away its tough leathery skin can take some patience, the effort is well rewarded with the fruit’s jewel-like ruby red seeds. The pomegranate appears in ancient Greek mythology cultivated for thousands of years. Today it is prised for its vitamin and antioxidant-rich arils that boast benefits for your body, inside and out.

Needless to say, the pomegranate is one of our favorite fruits. Tangy and sweet, its juice is perfect for a cocktail. This Pomegranate Mab-Tini leans into the bright juicy flavor of the pomegranate by pairing it with citrusy sweet meyer lemon (and no added sugar). We think the addition of a Mab Stick elevates its status from cocktail to health tonic (you’re welcome 😉). We hope you enjoy it! 

Ingredients (makes two cocktails):
3 oz pomegranate juice
Juice of 1 meyer lemon*
3 oz gin **
1 Recovery Mab Stick
Float of club soda
Pomegranate arils and a lemon twist for garnish 

Notes:  
* If you can’t find meyer lemons, a standard variety lemon will work, but you may need to add a little simple syrup as they are significantly more tart.

** To make this cocktail a mocktail, skip the gin, add extra club soda, and pour over ice. It’s incredibly good as mocktail spritzer!

Directions:

Add fruit juices and gin to a shaker or jar filled with ice. Pour in Recovery Mab Stick. Shake until chilled and pour evenly into two Coup or Martini glasses. 

Top each cocktail with a float of club soda and garnish with pomegranate arils and a lemon wheel or twist. 

Sip, enjoy!
