I was trying to come up with a clever name for this cocktail. And I finally ended up on “the Pomegranate Bomb,” not for any ominous reason, but because the French word for “pomegranate” is “le grenade.”
(Did you know that the reason why “grenades” are called “grenades” is because of this French word? All the insides of grenades are little pellets, much like pomegranate seeds.)
Now the reason why it’s “ticking”? That’s because this is a riff on a sloe gin fizz.
- 1 ounce sloe gin
- 1 ounce gin
- pomegranate juice to fill
- In a highball glass, pour the ingredients over ice.
- Stir to mix
- Garnish with anything you want!
