This Pomegranate Gin Smash cocktail is a refreshing complement to many of the flavors we serve at the Mayan Cafe. It’s the perfect cocktail for sitting on your front porch in the summer or entertaining friends in the spring. Try the recipe listed here. There are many types of gin out there, but we feel that St. George Botanivore Gin is the best complement for this drink. It’s a lovely, artisanal spirit.
2 oz St. George Botanivore gin
3/4 oz FruitLab jasmine liqueur
1 oz Finest Call pomegranate syrup
small handful fresh pomegranate seeds (6-7 pieces)
3 cucumber slices (thin slices)
Mix all ingredients (except one cucumber slice) along with a scoop of ice in a cocktail shaker and shake well.
Pour into a highball glass.
Garnish with another cucumber slice.
