Nothing screams Christmas quite like a red and green cocktail! This pomegranate & mint bourbon fizz is sure to be a big hit at your next holiday party or get-together. Not to mention, it’s incredibly easy to whip up for just one person or for an entire crowd!
Now let me tell you a little bit about my love/hate relationship with bourbon. I’m not usually a fan of bourbon cocktails but I love when desserts are baked with bourbon. I suppose it’s because some of the strong alcohol flavor bakes off in the oven. Well, this my friends is a bourbon cocktail that I actually enjoy drinking!
This pomegranate & mint bourbon fizz is not too strong and the pomegranate Italian soda adds the perfect amount of sweetness. Not to mention the homemade mint simple syrup which adds a nice hint of somethin’ somethin’. You could also make this drink a bit more savory by using rosemary instead of mint. Add more bourbon or less bourbon, or even dark rum would work well here. Have fun and experiment with flavors that you enjoy!
