1 1/2 cups gin, such as Tanqueray

1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (6 to 8 limes)

1 cup pomegranate juice, such as Pom Wonderful

1/2 cup simple syrup (see Cook's Note)

Pomegranate seeds, for garnish

6 to 8 thin, whole, round slices of lime, for garnish


  1. At least 1 hour before serving, freeze 6 to 8 martini glasses.
  2. Combine the gin, lime juice, pomegranate juice, and simple syrup in a large pitcher. Fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice, pour in the gimlet mixture until the shaker is 3/4 full and shake for 15 seconds. Pour into the frozen glasses and garnish each glass with a teaspoon of pomegranate seeds and a slice of lime.

Cook’s Note

For the simple syrup, combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and heat until the sugar dissolves completely. Set aside to cool or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
