Thought you might like a cocktail. A sparkler. Don’t you like that word? Sparkler.
It’s bubbly and pinkish and Valentiney! Cute. But don’t be fooled — it’s also full of bourbon. It will punch you in the face if you’re not careful.
I don’t mix up cocktails on the regs (hi, wine), so this took some experimenting, but the combination of smokey bourbon, sweet, tart pomegranate and bright lime is a good one. Give it a try! Make it for your Valentine! Punch someone in the face with it! The possibilities are endless.

- seltzer water
- 1 slice lime
