Pomegranate Moscow Mule (Mocktail & Cocktail)

The following recipe and photography for this post were provided by local blogger Abby Thome of The Thome Home.

Whether you are setting out to tackle “Dry January” and not consume alcohol or still indulging in an adult beverage every now and then, this drink can be made both with alcohol and as a mocktail, making it the ultimate cocktail to enjoy as you wish!

Sweet, rich pomegranate juice paired with tangy lime juice and a spicy bubbly ginger beer that gives this spin on a Moscow Mule a little kick. That is all you need! If you choose to make the alcoholic version, a simple addition of vodka and alcoholic ginger beer takes this colorful cocktail over the edge!

If you are entertaining a large crowd, you can make this ahead of time in a large pitcher so guests can serve themselves. Let guests pour their cocktail, and then set the ginger beer bottles off to the side for guests to do their own topping! Pitchers can be may an entire day in advance so the vodka really infuses with the lime and pomegranate!
