Entertaining Outdoors: Pomegranate Gin Tonic Cocktail

Pomegranate Gin Tonic Cocktail Recipe

Keeping up with our series entertaining outdoor, we created a special cocktail to enjoy during a gathering outside: the Pomegranate Gin Tonic cocktail. It’s a refreshing cocktail for the hotter days and most importantly, easy to make.

Gin & Tonic, G&T, Gin Tonic, however you would like to call it-this cocktail has become all the rage in the past years. This once shabby drink has now experienced a rebirth in popularity, finding its way to the chic and cool crowd. For us, it was a first and though I loved the Pomegranate Gin Tonic cocktail Fabian was more hesitant about the taste. Nonetheless, I did like the taste and can now shamelessly say that I’m a Gin-Tonic-kind-of-gal. Who would have thought! You can also switch the tonic for Ginger Ale to make it sweeter since Gin is not everyone’s type of drink.

Ever since I got into the cocktail I started loving the idea of being able to surprise friends with a cocktail I make right before their eyes. It’s not only impressive, but it also shows a certain effort you’re making for that person. You thought about a drink that would fit their taste and took the time to prepare it as well, instead of just giving a simple rum and coke. Plus, if they are people who normally don’t drink a cocktail (because cocktails have the reputation of being expensive) then they will love you after this. That is exactly what being the perfect host is all about—surprising your guests!
