Pomegranate Gimlet

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010 | Recipies | No Comments

I figured I would kick off the recipes with the current fan favorite – the pomegranate gimlet. This recipe was originally created for a good friend’s wedding. We sat down together and discussed what she was looking for in a punch. “Not too sweet” and “something having to do with pomegranate” were her two criteria. Thus, this recipe was born.  And hey – I’m pretty sure all the health benefits of pomegranate juice counteract all the alcohol you will be ingesting in an evening of drinking this punch.

Pomegranate Gimlet Recipe
(add ingredients to punch bowl in order listed and stir)

  • 5 lb Bag of Ice
  • 1 (1.5L) Bottle Vodka or Gin
  • 12 Limes – Squeezed
  • 4 Limes – Sliced thin
  • 1 (12 oz) Can Frozen Limeade
  • 24 oz Pomegranate Juice (Pom brand)
  • 1 Pomegranate – seeds only
  • 2 (2L) Bottles Plain Seltzer

Note: There is pretty much no time that it is ok to use flavored seltzer in any punch recipe. That stuff is filled with chemically fake taste and has no place in any drink you are concocting. Stick to plain, unflavored Seltzer or Club Soda please.
