Christmas Cheer

It's Christmas Eve 2010 and Christmas isn't Christmas without a little Christmas Cheer. Mixology is not my strong suit but you know how I love my bevvies. I was tinkering in the kitchen (as I do) and came up with this crimson elixir for our annual Christmas cocktail...

Frosty's Pom Pom

2 ounces good gin (try Swordsman if you want a smooth and herbalicious but great value gin)
2 ounces Pom wonderful juice
1/2 once freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 to 1 ounce lemon simple syrup (place 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan, bring to boil, remove from heat, add strips of peel from 1 lemon, cover and allow to cool. Strain into a mason jar, this mixture will keep in the fridge for a goodly while.)

Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, shake until it's frosty, strain into chilled 'tini glasses, garnish with pomegranate arils or a maraschino cherry.

Serves 2 hobbits or 1 Andralope
