Happy Monday!

How was your weekend?

Ready to say “Goodbye” to 2014 and say “Hello” to the new year?

Although I’m still in a holiday mood, I found some time to make mojitos.

Mojitos are my favorite drinks to make by far.

I know that most people connect them with the summer and going to the beach, but I can have them any time of the year. With pomegranates in season now, it was the perfect time to make a pomegranate mojito cocktail. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to make this drink and after my Original Lime, Strawberry and Watermelon Mojito recipes I shared last summer, I thought this could make a nice New Year’s Eve drink.

I love sweet cocktails like this pomegranate one, which I prepared with fresh pomegranate seeds and simple syrup. Of course rum, lime juice mint and some ice.

For this particular cocktail I used lime flavored Perrier sparkling water, but unflavored soda or sparkling water works awesome.

This is not a classic Mojito recipe, that’s why I’m not using brown sugar, instead I prefer making my mojitos with simple syrup. This way it tastes so much better, sweeter and flavors are well balanced.

And another fun fact about me – I love making Mojito in a tall glass and refuse to drink it from a short one. I like this drink in size “large”.

It is pretty, festive, sweet and flavorful. Very sparkly and if you skip the rum, it will make a great mocktail  (virgin mojito).
