Herb's Pomegranate Punch

By

Glass Guide- Collins Glass

Pomegranate Punch is an excellent drink to experience the flavors of cilantro vodka (originally using Herb's Cilantro Vodka, which is now unavailable). The natural zip of cilantro is sweetened up with fresh juices (pomegranate and lime) and brown sugar (an optional, but preferred ingredient). This cocktail is a nice pairing for Mexican dishes or anything that is slightly spicy as the sweetness can calm the palate.
