This a great cocktail ready mix that you can bottle and give away as a gift. It is made with homebrew Black Currant Liqueur (cassis or creme de cassis), pomegranate juice, light rum and fresh lime juice. You will need to obtain some 750 ml wine bottles. I used screw top wine bottles for my project (with plastic tops) because it was convenient for me. I don’t have a corker and the screw tops make a good seal.
Pomegranate Daiquiri Mix
- 7 oz Pomegranate Juice
- 3 oz Light Rum
- 2 oz Black Currant Liqueur (or creme de cassis)
- 1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
Mix the pomegranate juice, rum, black currant liqueur and lime juice in the above proportions and add to 2 qt. Mason jars. Bottle the batch in 750 ml wine bottles. Seal and label the bottles.
I used Bacardi rum and 100% pomegranate juice from Trader Joe’s. It is also a good idea to strain the fresh squeezed lime juice through a small strainer when adding it to the mix. I used the smallest size strainer in the photo here. Straining the lime juice is necessary to remove the pulp.
I also made a custom label with some directions on how to blend the cocktail with crushed ice. Look for the custom label template and layouts in a future page in the Bottles and Labels section of the website. Also check this page for the seals (hoods).
You can find 750 ml wine bottles from most homebrew supply that sells winemaking equipment and supplies. You can search for "wine bottles" in Google to find many sources.
