Pomegranate Mojitos

A shot with the ingredients

Yes, we made a whole pitcher

I love mojitos.  They remind me of summertime and I love that you can change just one or two ingredients and have a completely different drink! I decided to host a little happy hour for my coworkers and wanted to make a fun cocktail.  I love pomegranates and love the color that they add to the drink.  It also makes me feel like I'm drinking something healthy...aren't pomegranates anti-oxidants?  I threw in some lime slices, fresh mint and pomegranate arils (That's the fancy name for the seed - I just learned this yesterday...).  We had a wonderful evening and it was great to catch up out of the office.  If you make this at home for a crowd, I'd recommend mixing up the cocktail in a pitcher without the booze.  That way, your guests can still enjoy the fresh taste of summer even if they'd rather not partake in the alcohol.  I hope you make this refreshing cocktail and enjoy it with good friends.
