  1. Heat small pot on medium high heat
  2. Add 1 part pomegranate juice to 1 part sugar
  3. Let simmer for 7-10 minutes; stirring occasionally

The Sips & Spirits Cocktail Promise

We have certain goals in mind as you discover what Sips & Spirits does on the podcast. It is extremely important when we design cocktails that they are not just friendly to the beginner mixologist, but also affordable. The majority of the ingredients listed can be substituted. Suggestions are noted whenever possible.

When we design an original cocktail, we will also provide a mocktail. We understand not everyone can or wants to indulge in alcohol. We chose to offer an alternative when possible. This allows you to be a part of the fun, regardless of your sobriety reasons.
