Adding honey to the slightly bitter pomegranate makes for a not-too-sweet cocktail syrup that has multiple uses. I like to put it in a decorative pitcher so you (or your guests) can add different mixers to create a variety of drinks.

Having a party?  This syrup has many uses including as an ingredient in a Pamplemousse-Grenade Cocktail. It also makes a lovely Prosecco or sparkling wine cocktail – add a teaspoon or two to a glass and top with bubbly wine – perfect for a ladies’ brunch. Or, add it to sparkling water for a non-alcoholic treat.

Holiday Tip:  This syrup keeps for about two months – so make it now so you have it on hand for gatherings or parties throughout the holidays. You’ll impress guests when you whip up a fun cocktail.
