Celebrate the Weekend with a Gin Rickey

I was looking for a new drink to serve at my dinner party last week.  I came upon this recipe which is a new take on a vodka rickey. 

A vodka rickey is simply vodka with lime juice and soda water.  
 This version is a refreshing drink, perfect for summer.  Gin replaces vodka and dried cranberries and pomegranate juice add a touch of sweetness.

Gather the ingredients; gin, pomegranate juice, lime and dried cranberries.

Soak 2 tablespoons of dried cranberries in 45ml of gin.  Add to the glass, 45 ml of pomegranate juice, 30 ml of lime juice, 10 ml of simple syrup*, and 60-90 ml of soda water.  Add ice, give it a stir and garnish with lime and a mint leaf or two.  

*simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water. Stir to dissolve and bring to a boil and then cool.

Can you believe it is the end of the week and the end of March?
Have a fantastic weekend.
