Making up a signature Christmas party drink, our pomegranate old fashioned cocktail, that everyone will love, is easy. We take a classic, the Old Fashioned, and add a twist, pomegranate juice. Simple but remarkably effective at elevating this simple cocktail. People who love whiskey will definitely enjoy this one and best of all, it’s easy to make in big batches.

We like to serve it in glasses rimmed with our festive Christmas cocktail sugar.

 4 tbsp pomegranate seeds
 1 tsp granulated sugar
 810 dashes orange bitters
 4 oz Whiskey or bourbon
 Splash of water
 Ice
 Additional pomegranate seeds for garnish
