Wet the glass rim with gingerbread syrup, then dip it in cinnamon sugar. Put 3 cubes of ice in your cocktail shaker, then add your pomegranate juice, bitters, soda water and 1 tbs of gingerbread syrup. Shake for 10 seconds and bingo! To create the perfect Xmas mood, decorate with few pomegranate seeds, cinnamon stick, one anise star and a sprig of Rosemary. Cheers! Or should I say “Alla vostra salute”!
