My boyfriend and I are big gin fans, and so when Pepprell Distilling Company reached out, I jumped on the opportunity to collaborate. The brand is based out of Ontario however it also has East coast roots which I love (the distillery got its name from a street in Halifax where the owner lived while studying at Dalhousie University). While our go-to for gin is usually a simple gin and tonic, I thought it would be fun to throw together a holiday inspired cocktail for the occasion. This pomegranate gin cocktail is a great way to incorporate the festive flavours and colours of the season without too much headaches (and by headaches I mean the labour-related kind, not the hang-over kind).

Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 oz pomegranate juice
- 1 oz Pepprell Distilling Company gin (or gin of choice)
- 1 oz rosemary simple syrup (recipe included below)
- Pomegranate carbonated water, to top
- Pomegranate arils, for garnish
- Sugared rosemary sprigs, for garnish (optional)
Here’s what you’ll do:
- For the rosemary simple syrup, combine ½ cup water and ½ cup granulated sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add 2 sprigs of rosemary. Allow to steep for 30 minutes. Drain and set aside. Cool completely before use. *If you choose to use sugared rosemary sprigs as a garnish, add additional springs to the steeping saucepan at the end of the 30 minute mark. Dip sprigs into syrup, place on a cooling rack and sprinkle with additional sugar. Allow to dry until hardened.
- Fill a glass with ice. Pour gin over ice then stir in pomegranate juice and simple syrup.
- Top with carbonated water and garnish with pomegranate arils and sugared rosemary sprig.
- Serve and enjoy!
