You Need a Drink: Pom & Ginger

7Up has a new pomegranate flavor. (And a new diet pomegranate flavor, natch.) I tried it, and it’s the closest non-Southern approximation of Cheerwine I’ve been able to get my grubby little hands on. But you know what’s even better than a Yankeefied version of my favorite nostalgia beverage? Alcohol, obviously. The good folks at 7Up sent us this drink recipe, which I can confirm is tasty. Especially once you’ve had four.

Pom & Ginger

  • 1 ounce Rose’s Cocktail Infusions Pomegranate Twist
  • 1.5 ounces vodka or whiskey (Lilit’s note: I think it’s better with vodka)

Fill a glass with 3/4 cup ice. Pour ingredients over ice. Add equal parts ginger ale and Pomegranate 7Up.

    My brother went to school in Salisbury, NC, home of Cheerwine, and it is still out there if you want it.

      I’ll be in NC for the holidays and plan to bring back a stash. Also, did you know that Food Lion sells Cheerwine sherbet? It tastes like pure love.
