This recipe is courtesy of one of my favorite bartenders, Anthony Montz, formerly of Double Cross Lounge and currently of Zimm's (4321 Montrose). It's sweet and tangy, and the beautiful ruby-red pomegranate seeds make it the perfect drink to indulge in this season. Try it at home or go by Zimm's and ask Anthony to whip one up for you.
