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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
