Description

Inspired by the Moscow Mule cocktail, this sparkling nonalcoholic drink features a ginger infused simple syrup, pomegranate juice, and ginger beer.


Ingredients

Scale

For the ginger simple syrup

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sliced fresh ginger

For the mocktails

  • 3/4 cup ginger simple syrup
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups ginger beer (I use Fever Tree)
  • Fresh mint or lime slices for garnish

Instructions

For the ginger simple syrup

  1. Heat: In a small saucepan, stir together the sugar, water, and ginger; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir until the sugar is dissolved, 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat.
  2. Steep: Cover the saucepan and let steep for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Strain and chill: Using a slotted spoon, strain out the ginger pieces and discard. Chill the simple syrup until ready to use (see Notes). You should have about 3/4 cup simple syrup.

For the mocktails

  1. Stir: In a mixing glass, stir together the simple syrup, pomegranate juice, and lime juice.
  2. Serve: Divide the pomegranate mixture among 3-4 glasses and top each glass with the ginger beer. Garnish with fresh mint or limes slices and serve.

Notes

  • To quickly chill the syrup, put the saucepan into a bowl of ice-water being careful not to get any water in the pan. Stir the syrup until it is cold.
