La Bomba

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.

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.
