The Cherry Pie Old Fashioned fit for the Fourth of July was the last cocktail recipe posted on Dish + Drink. It’s been several weeks since then and now, at the height of the summer, it’s time for a refreshing and light tipple.

This drink combines gin and fruit juices with elderflower liqueur and ginger liqueur for a tart, floral, and aromatic treat. The pomegranate juice is optional, but it’s also quite recommended.

What you’ll need:
2 oz gin
1 oz elderflower liqueur
1/2 oz ginger liqueur
1 oz lime juice
Pomegranate juice
Crushed ice

Combine gin, elderflower liqueur, ginger liqueur, and lime juice in a glass. Mix well and pour over crushed ice. Add pomegranate juice to taste and serve.
