While we’re making 2022 a healthy new year for ourselves, it’s essential to treat yourself every once in a while to a fruity little drink. Whether it’s after a long workday or you need an extra something-something for you on your self-care day, a little drink can be what you need. Now, while we’re used to the Barefoot Contessa adding flavor to our salads, it’s time for her to add some fruity flavor to a classic.

Have you heard of a gimlet? It’s a classic cocktail made of gin and limes. Now if that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, Ina Garten switched it up by making a Pomegranate Gimlet.

While pomegranates are in season for the winter months, treat yourself to this beginner-level cocktail.

Garten recommends getting the usuals like limes and Tanqueray gin. But she recommends adding ingredients like Pom Wonderful pomegranate juice and pomegranate seeds, to name a few.

The drink recipe starts by combining multiple ingredients in a large pitcher and ends by garnishing it, respectively. Something Garten says to keep in mind is to place the martini glasses in the freezer about an hour before serving to your guests.
