Move over cranberries.

It seems like cranberries get all the love this time of year. They are everywhere, starting with their place of honor at the Thanksgiving table. But they also pop up in lots of seasonal cocktails like this Sparkling Cranberry Gin Cocktail, these Cranberry Whiskey Sours and this Cranberry Gimlet.

In my book, nothing beats a pomegranate if you’re looking for a unique, colorful cocktail during the holidays. These quick and easy Pomegranate Gin Cocktails come together in minutes but the result is irresistible enough to make all season long.

That’s easy: gin, elderflower liqueur, fresh lemon juice and pomegranate juice. You might even have most or all of them on hand right now. Not sure what elderflower liqueur is? Check out our handy guide to one of our favorite liqueurs.  

If you’re feeling fancy, you can also add some lemon slices or a lemon twist to your cocktail as a contrasting garnish. Or float a few pomegranate seeds in each glass.

I’m not a huge gin fan. Can I use vodka in these pomegranate cocktails instead?

We get that substitution question a lot here.

I love gin, so I don’t often swap in other spirits to take its place, but I know many of you do. If you give it a go, please stop back and let us know how it turned out!

    This was a great base recipe. I increased the Gin to 2 oz and substituted the elderflower liqueur for Grand Marnier. I used fresh pomegranates from our tree. The drink was delicious but slightly tart. Sugar on the rim might be a good addition.

      That’s a fun twist, Debbie!

    It was definitely too tart for me. I made a second drink with 1 ounce elderflower liqueur and only 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Much easier to drink! Loved it!
