2 ounces bourbon

1 ounce Lillet

1/2 ounce lemon juice

2 ounces pomegranate juice

In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine the bourbon, Lillet, lemon juice and pomegranate juice. Shake, then strain into an ice-filled tumbler.

A few weeks back, we featured a bourbon cocktail that was perfect for holiday entertaining. “For cold weather holidays, I gravitate to bourbon. It has all the qualities I’m looking for — warming, festive, affordable and compatible. And because of those qualities, you don’t need to do much to it to create a terrific cocktail you’ll want to nurse your way through during the party,” wrote J.M. Hirsch of The Associated Press. So when a friend ordered a cocktail with pomegranate juice at the bar recently, my mind turned back to Hirsch’s bourbon-based drinks. I think I’ll give the Juicy Dreams a try as my New Year’s resolution.
