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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
