A classic gin sling is dressed for festive parties when made with seasonal pomegranate juice and decorated with crimson pomegranate fruit. Both simple syrup and agave syrup are widely available at liquor stores. To make your own simple syrup, boil 2 parts sugar to 1 part water, stirring just until sugar dissolves; reduce until thickened. Cool before using.
1/4 cup gin
1/4 cup pomegranate juice, chilled
1 tablespoon agave syrup or simple syrup
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
8 pomegranate seeds
2 lime slices
How to Make It
