La Bomba

La Bomba daiquiri cocktail with raspberries, light rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and pomegranate molasses

We haven’t met a recipe from mixologist Joaquín Simó we didn’t fall in love with, and La Bomba is no exception. We even love the name – a nod to the French word grenade, meaning pomegranate.

Simó’s recipe calls for pomegranate molasses, a deep violet-red syrup made from reduced pomegranate juice. We’ve found it to be a superior replacement for grenadine in almost every case. Feel free to use normal pomegranate grenadine here – but definitely avoid the fake corn syrup stuff.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the raspberries and simple syrup in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and shake well. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lime wheel and a fresh raspberry.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
