  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • ½ cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons simple syrup see Note or Ginger Basil simple syrup
  • 1 ½ cups vodka
  • quarter slice orange to garnish optional


  • In a large pitcher, combine the pomegranate juice, grapefruit juice, orange juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and vodka. Chill for at least 1 hour, or until very cold.
  • Fill glasses with ice, and pour the cocktail over the ice. Garnish the glasses with the little citrus wedges if desired (cutting a little slit into the wedge makes it easier to perch it on the glass)



To make simple syrup, simple combine equal parts water and sugar in a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring frequently until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a clean container, and cool. Cover and chill. You can refrigerate simple syrup for up to 3 months.
