When it comes to what we love about the festive season, cocktails with our favourite people has to rank fairly highly. Now we’re basing this Festive Frangelico Pom off one of our favourites – The Fringe – but we added a little festive twist, because when else can you drink red and green cocktails? Plus the pomegranate adds a little tart flavour to this fun summer drink.


  • 15ml lime juice
  • 2 fresh lime wedges
  • 3 bruised mint leaves
  • 40ml vodka
  • 15ml pomegranate liqueur
  • Ice
  • Ginger beer
  • Pomegranate seeds


In a cocktail shaker, add lime wedges, lime juice, mint, vodka and pomegranate liqueur. Muddle together well and then strain.

In your glass of choice, add plenty of ice and pour in your lime and pomegranate mixture.

Choose your garnish! We love fresh pomegranate seeds if they are in season, but if you want a cocktail packed full of flavour, we suggest adding the previously muddled lime and mint (so delicious!)
