I had a cocktail at Freeman’s a while back ago and it rocked my world. I mean really, this thing was so delicious I immediately memorized the ingredients so I could try to make my own at home. They call it Freeman’s Cocktail, but because I’m not sure of the exact proportions I renamed it Pomegranate Dandy.
All it requires is some bourbon, a lemon, pomegranate molasses and bitters. Shake them all up and you’ve got yourself cocktail that tastes like the best grown-up candy ever. It’s a little sweet, a little sour but it’s all good. Have a great weekend! Cheers!
inspired by Freeman’s Cocktail
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz pomegranate molasses
2 oz bourbon
lemon peel, for garnish
dash of bitters
Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
Strain into a glass.
Using a knife, cut a 2-3 inch piece of lemon peel avoiding the white pith as much as possible. Gently fold it so the outsides touch each other and squeeze the oils over the drink. Fold the other way and garnish the side of the cup.
