POM Wonderful Week Begins with Happy Hour: Pomegranate Moscow Mule

pomegranate recipe

It’s Friday afternoon, and time for a cocktail!  I made this Pomegranate Moscow Mule for my POM party guests recently, and it quickly became everyone’s new favorite drink.  The combination of ginger, lime, and crunchy pomegranate seeds makes this cocktail refreshing and comforting at the same time.  Not to mention the colors are ideal for any upcoming holiday meal or party.
