For the freshest flavor, use refrigerated pomegranate juice. For a nonalcoholic version of the drink, omit the vodka, replace the liqueur with fresh-squeezed orange juice, and increase the ginger ale to 5 cups.
5 cups pomegranate juice (see notes)
2 1/2 cups vodka (see notes)
1/3 cup orange-flavored liqueur (see notes)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 1/2 cups chilled ginger ale (see notes)
How to Make It
In a pitcher, combine pomegranate juice, vodka, orange-flavored liqueur, and fresh lime juice. Cover and chill until very cold, at least 1 hour (see notes). Just before serving, stir in ginger ale. Pour into ice-filled glasses. If desired, garnish glasses with thin orange slices.
You can make the juice mixture up to 1 day ahead; chill airtight (you can freeze the vodka mixture at least 1 hour and up to 1 day).
