Vanilla Pomegranate Ginger Fizz {perfect for Thanksgiving}

Thanksgiving requires cocktails that shake up quickly and will keep your guests happily sipping while you get on with the rest of the meal. You can make this vanilla pomegranate ginger fizz martini style (which requires a bit more attention) or the more laissez-faire pitcher style. If you’ve got a big crowd, simply multiply the recipe accordingly, and add all the ingredients save the ginger-ale to a large pitcher. When your guests arrive, add ice and the ginger-ale and stir well to combine. This way people can help themselves, and you have one less thing to worry about.
Ingredients (makes two cocktails)
  • 5 ounces vanilla vodka
  • 2 ounces unsweetened pomegranate juice (the “Pom” variety works well)
  • 2 ounces simple syrup (either make it yourself by boiling 1 part sugar to 1 part water, or you can buy it pre-made at William Sonoma-they even have a pomegranate flavored one)
  • 2 cans ginger-ale (diet or regular, your choice!)

In a martini shaker filled with ice, combine the vanilla vodka, pomegranate juice, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously until chilled. Pour into two glasses, and top up with ginger-ale as desired. If you’re feeling fancy, add a few pomegranate seeds for garnish.

OR: Stir all ingredients together in a large pitcher filled with ice.
