Happy Happy Friday!!
Today I'm continuing the cocktail theme from yesterdays bar cart post with a tasty + festive holiday beverage!
This Pomegranate Sparkling Apple Cider Smash combines sparkling apple cider, a splash of lemon juice, pomegranate juice, and bourbon. The result is delicious, and is oh so pretty with the floating pomegranate seeds! I hope you give it a try this hoiday season!
Pomegranate Sparkling Apple Cider Smash
- 2.5 oz. bourbon
- 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1/2-1 Tbsp. pomegranate juice*
- 6 oz. sparkling apple cider (like Martinelli's)
- 1/2 Tbsp. pomegranate seeds
*Supposedly Martinelli's makes a Pomegranate-Apple sparkling cider, but my local grocery didn't carry it. If you can find that, feel free to use it instead of the regular Martinelli's + pomegranate juice combo :)
Fill a tall & skinny or short & wide cocktail glass with ice. Add the bourbon, and stir to chill. Next, add the lemon juice, pomegranate juice, and apple cider. Stir to combine, then top with the pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!!
