Shaken & Stirred

Here in Chico, California, fall is an especially lovely time of year. The super-hot summer days give way to cooler temps, but it’s still plenty warm out to enjoy a drink on the porch. And in our orchard, the pomegranates are ripe and beckoning….

Pomegranate Mojito

  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon California Wildflower Honey
  • 5 ounces light rum
  • 2 ounces fresh pomegranate juice
  • Club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 lime, 1/2 cut into thin round slices
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds

Muddle the mint, honey and two lime slices in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add pomegranate juice, juice from ½ lime, white rum, and shake vigorously. Pour over ice in a cocktail glass and top with club soda. Garnish with lime slice, mint leaves, and pomegranate seeds.
