Now, that’s a classy Gin Fizz
This Pomegranate Gin Fizz, or Pom Fizz for short, is a deliciously fizzy blend of pomegranate juice and New Wave gin.
Nothing beats the effervescent tingle of a fizz cocktail! This delicious Pom Fizz is a delicious gin cocktail for any occasion.
The traditional Gin Fizz recipe pairs gin, lime juice, club soda, and sometimes egg white. This cocktail does not contain any egg white, making it a diet friendly cocktail.
This Pom Fizz amps up the citrus taste of the classic gin fizz with the slightly sour-sweet taste of pomegranate juice. R.W. Knudsen’s Just Pomegranate Juice is a great choice, but you can use any pomegranate juice you like. Merely adjust the simple syrup accordingly to offset the sugar in the juice.
When selecting the perfect gin to pair with fruity flavors, I tend to favor the botanical essences of New Wave gins. These gins soften the traditional juniper taste of gin by putting emphasis on other herbal flavors.
In the case of Wilder Gin, its flavors are sage and other mountain herbs. When blended with pomegranate juice, these botanical flavors transport you into a little heavenly escape.
This is how you make a Pom Fizz Cocktail!

Pom Fizz: Press sliced lime against the bottom of a lowball glass with a bar spoon or muddler, to release the citrus juice. Add gin, pomegranate juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds, or until chilled to desired temperature.
