Ginger Pomegranate Paloma

Ginger Pomegranate Paloma is a refreshing cocktail or mocktail to make during the holiday season!

Today is the day!!

Sound the trumpets.

Because tonight is the first LAUNCH PARTY of Modern Comfort Cooking! HORRAY! I am so flipping pumped to finally share my cookbook with all of my hometown folks here in Wichita, Kansas.

Tonights festivities (in case you didn’t catch all the details on Facebook) are taking place at Central Standard Brewing (CSB). You guys know that I would never turn down a cold microbrew so naturally CSB was the perfect sanctuary to host this epic event.

Besides drinks there will be food truck bites, swag, and special giveaways. I’m co-hosting with The Workroom and if you bring in your proof of pre-order purchase you will automatically receive 10% off their merchandise as well as be entered for a chance to win some fabulous prizes! Can you say winning? If you are in Wichita and want to stop by, we will be there from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Come by and say hi!

Okay, I figured this special occasion calls for a cocktail. A festive one at that. I figured this Ginger Pomegranate Paloma is the perfect way to celebrate a cookbook launch party and the holidays. Muddle fresh ginger, pomegranate arils, and lime juice inside a cocktail shaker. Add grapefruit juice, pomegranate juice, and tequila. Shake, pour, and sip. Garnish with all the festive fixings and enjoy!

Cheers to everyone I see tonight! Wouldn’t be here without your love and support!

Ginger Pomegranate Paloma


2 tbsp pomegranate arils
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp lime juice
1/3 cup pomegranate juice
2/3 cup grapefruit juice
2 shots tequila or vodka
Ice cubes
1 12oz can ginger beer
Grapefruit slices, for garnish
Lime slices, for garnish


In a large cocktail shaker add the pomegranate arils, fresh ginger, and lime juice. Muddle until the arils have broken down. Next, add in the pomegranate juice, grapefruit juice, and tequila. Cover the shaker and then shake well for about 10 seconds. Fill two cocktail glasses with ice. Divide pomegranate mixture between two glasses filling only halfway. Next, pour the ginger beer into each glass until liquid reaches the rim. Garnish with grapefruit and lime slices. Enjoy!
