How to Make Ginger Strawberry Pomegranate Mocktails

If you haven't mixed your own mocktails or cocktails before, this is a great place to start. This fun recipe has a few tricks that every bartender should learn, including muddling berries, mixing flavors, and topping your glasses with fizz. Luckily, it's easier than you might think to prepare stunning multi-colored glasses of your favorite drinks.

Here's what you need to know to make these pomegranate mocktails tonight:

Ingredients

First, assemble your ingredients at the bar. You'll need:

  • Fresh strawberries. Remove the hull and slice the berries into thin pieces. You're going to press these into a natural syrup to flavor and color your drink.
  • Pomegranate arils. Use this helpful how-to to remove the arils from a fresh pomegranate without a mess.
  • Lemon juice. Just a tablespoon is enough to perk up these drinks with a bit of fresh, acidic punch.
  • Agave syrup. This is a great sweetener for cocktails. It's mild tasting and dissolves well in cold liquids.
  • Ginger beer. A splash of high-quality ginger beer puts the ginger into these strawberry pomegranate mocktails. Not to mention some much-needed fizz! Make sure your ginger beer is cold before you make your mocktails.

Recipe Steps

Once you have your ingredients at the ready, let's start mixing!

First, muddle the strawberries. Place them in a bowl with the lemon juice and crush them with a spoon or a muddler if you have one. Crush the berries until they're well broken down into a paste. Then, stir in the agave.

Now you're ready to assemble the mocktails. Fill two tall glasses with ice. Add two or three tablespoons of pomegranate seeds to the bottom of the glasses. Next, pour two tablespoons of the strawberry paste. Finally, fill your glasses to the top with ginger beer.

Topping Strawberry Pomegranate Mocktails

If you want to add extra decoration to your strawberry pomegranate mocktails, top each glass with a natural element. I like to add a few extra sliced strawberries or pomegrante seeds. A sprig of fresh mint also adds a nice herbal note.

Big-Batch Mocktails

If you'd like to serve a thirsty crowd these refreshing strawberry pomegranate mocktails, it's easy to do! You can easily scale this recipe up to suit your needs. If you'd like to make a big batch punch-style (instead of assembling each mocktail one at a time), you can mix the strawberries, ginger beer, and pomegranate seeds in a punch bowl with plenty of ice. You won't have the same ombré look, but it will taste just as good!
