This Cranberry Pomegranate Cocktail is the holiday cocktail of your dreams. Made with cranberry simple syrup and pomegranate juice, it's perfectly sweet and festive. It's also delicious as a virgin cocktail.
Put cranberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, lower heat to medium low and let cook for another 10 minutes, until berries start bursting.
Strain the juice into a heat-proof bowl, leaving the solids behind, and place bowl in fridge to cool.
In a glass filled with ice, pour half the vodka, half the pomegranate juice, and half the lemon juice. Repeat with second glass. Pour 1 1/2 oz. cranberry simple syrup in each glass and top glasses off with soda water.
Garnish with cranberries and pomegranate arils, if desired
