Grapefruit & Pomegranate Vodka Sour


This recipe originally appeared in a winter seasonal food + drink pairing with my Winter Buddha Bowl, but given the immense popularity of the cocktail recipe by itself, I decided it was time to give it its own dedicated recipe page!

You can find more winter citrus cocktails here and a delicious, even easier, booze-free version of this in my Winter Sun (Grapefruit & Pomegranate Mocktail)!

Who doesn’t love a simple, seasonal cocktail? This light, crisp Grapefruit & Pomegranate Sour is a great lunch or dinner-time cocktail, made with vodka, grapefruit, lemon, and a honey pomegranate syrup.

Tip: if you’re a gin lover, feel free to substitute with a nice junipery London Dry, or even a fruity grapefruit gin like Malfy Gin Rosa!

Quick & easy honey pomegranate syrup

Don’t be intimidated by the special syrup, this one takes very little prep and just a minute or two to combine ingredients.

You can use freshly pressed pomegranate juice, or a brand like POM, it’s up to you. I like to use fresh juice when I can find pomegranates at the store.

Simply mix 1/2 cup of honey with 1/2 cup of water, add 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice, stir, and voila!

I like to use warm water to speed up the process, but you can use room temperature water and the honey will dissolve almost as quickly.

There’s no need to cook or boil anything and make more dirty dishes. Simply mix and store the syrup in the same mason jar or other resealable container.

This Honey Pomegranate Syrup should keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
