This tequila based drink is a seasonal spin on a classic Mexican cocktail. It has a great combination of fizzy, slightly sweet, and spicy from the ginger. My recipe for a Pomegranate Ginger Paloma is made with a healthier version of simple syrup -using organic honey and lots of ginger!


I N G R E D I E N T S

For the ginger syrup:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 inch fresh ginger sliced
