Ingredients

For the simple Syrup:

  • (If you'd like to make your own simple syrup, this recipe makes around 1 3/4 cups)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

For the Mojito:

  • 8 fresh mint leaves — ( plus more for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 3 oz Bacardi white rum

  • 1 cup ice — (might need more)
  • soda water — (I used lime flavored Perrier)

Instructions

  1. Prepare simple syrup, by combining 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water and bringing it to a boil. Stir to let sugar dissolve and remove from heat. Let syrup cool.
  2. In a sturdy glass add mint leaves, pomegranate seeds, lime juice, rum and simple syrup. With a muddles or a wooden spoon, muddle to extract juices from mint leaves and pomegranate seeds.
