Pomegranate Moscow Mules
4 ounces chilled vodka
2 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounces lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup (optional)
3/4 of a can of ginger beer to taste
2-3 sprigs of fresh mint
Lime wheel and tops of mint for garnish
Strip, slap, and muddle 2-3 sprigs of mint in a shaker.
Add ice, vodka, and juices. If you like it a little sweeter, also add the simple syrup now. We used lemon simple syrup since that's what we had in the fridge.
Shake vigorously until your arm wants to fall off.
Pour, drink, and enjoy!
Garnish at will.
Pro-Tip! Chill the glasses at the very start for an extra icy delight.
