Pomegranate Bourbon Smash

You know it’s officially fall when you switch from vodka to whiskey (or bourbon)… I told myself I need to make more fun cocktails, so here we are. These pomegranate bourbon smash cocktails are super easy to make and they are so delicious. Plus they’re the perfect fall drink… but also LOOK how nicely these colors carry over for Christmas! I’m just thinking ahead for everyone.

Is it just me or is taking pomegranate seeds out of the pomegranate SO incredibly soothing… I would be lying if I said that I took the seeds out of three pomegranates. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But now they’re like a perfect snack sitting out on the counter. Whenever I go in the kitchen I just take a handful.

I used POM pomegranate juice, but I also cut the drink with club soda for a little fizz and not as much sugar. All pomegranate juice would just be too much… you need something to tone it down a bit

I didn’t muddle the pomegranate seeds with the mint, I moreso just put the seeds in there for a nice look. A cocktail’s gotta have flare too.

All you need is one shot bourbon, one shot pomegranate juice, and then fill the rest of your cup up with club soda. Cheers!
