Pomegranate Cosmopolitan

Here’s a festive cocktail that’s sure to make spirits bright. This red- and green-hued libation is perfect for Christmas cheer[ing], and the pomegranate — a symbol of prosperity — makes it a terrific cocktail to sip when ringing in 2014.

When mixing for a crowd, I’m especially fond of ratio-based recipes — this one is super easy to remember, each amount is simply double the last 1:2:4:8:16. You could totally get away with a heavier hand with each of the spirits, but I really like the sip-ability as is.

Happy holidays, everyone!
