The holiday party scene is in full swing (I am going to another one this weekend), so I have added another recipe for a stress free holiday cocktail. Just the title of the drink sounds more complicated than it is, but I promise it just takes a bit more planning. This cocktail is perfect for a holiday party, but the gorgeous colors really work for any occasion. To elevate the look of the drink we added simple garnishes such as a sliced fig on a skewer, fresh berries and pomegranate seeds. On another note, Torrey and I are so excited to be featured on Style Me Pretty Living again. You can see this drink recipe on their website today at 8:30am PST.
Pomegranate Mule with Fig Infused Vodka (yield two drinks)
2 ounces fig infused vodka (see below)
3 ounces pomegranate juice
Fresh lime juice (1/2 lime)
12 ounces Ginger Beer
Pomegranate seeds for garnish
Fresh fig for garnish
Combine ingredients in copper mug and top with crushed ice. Garnish with fig slice on a skewer.
Fig infused vodka: Pour bottle of vodka into an airtight container. Remove skin from 10-12 figs, slice in quarters and drop into vodka. Seal tightly and leave on the counter (or at room temperature outside of direct sunlight) for at least 2-3 days.* Shake the jar once or twice a day to move everything around.Once you have the flavor you want, use a cheesecloth to strain all of the fruit pieces left in the vodka. Pour back into original bottle.
*You can leave the fruit in the longer, the stronger you want the flavor to be.
