Ina Garten Says This Is the “Perfect” Holiday Cocktail
Even if your holiday gathering continues to be a bit small this year, you should still make sure you’ve got the right cocktail. It should be equal parts easy, festive, and delicious, and as always, Ina Garten has just the thing for all of us.
To make Garten’s pomegranate gimlet, chill classic martini glasses in the freezer as you mix together gin, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and simple syrup in a pitcher. Then shake over ice for a full 15 seconds — “It’s longer than you think!” she says — and pour the drink into the chilled martini glasses. Finish with a garnish of pomegranate seeds and lime slices.
Theoretically, the drink makes six cups, but that’s figuring standard martini glasses and being able to have normal-sized gatherings. Realistically, given how this year went, it seems just about the right amount to fill one of Ina’s giant martini glasses.
