Ingredients:

● 4 tablespoons pomegranate syrup*

● 8 oz spicy ginger beer or ginger ale

● 2 grapefruit slices

● 2 sprigs fresh mint


Instructions:

To make pomegranate syrup:

Bring 2 cups pomegranate juice, ¼ cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice to a simmer in an uncovered saucepan, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce heat just enough to maintain a light simmer for one hour, or until the juice has a syrupy consistency and has reduced to about half a cup. Pour pomegranate syrup into a glass jar, allow to cool and store chilled in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.



In two champagne flutes, evenly divide the pomegranate syrup. Top with 4 ounces ginger beer, each. Garnish each flute with a fresh grapefruit slice and sprig of fresh mint.
