  • 12 oz American pale ale
  • 3 oz ounces bourbon
  • 1 pomegranate fruit
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary to make rosemary ice cubes + ice cube tray


  • In advance prepare the rosemary ice cubes by placing a few rosemary leaves in each cube of an ice form and fill with water.
  • Split open the pomegranate and carefully scoop out two thirds of the seeds and place them into a fine mesh strainer placed over a small bowl.
  • With the back of a spoon press the seeds to release the juices.
  • Fill two glasses with the reserved pomegranate seeds (equally divided).
  • Equally divide the resulting pomegranate juice and pour over two glasses filled with 4-5 rosemary ice cubes.
  • Measure out 1.5 oz of bourbon to each glass and pour over the ice cubes.
  • Pour 6 oz of pale ale into each glass and stir.
  • Enjoy!
