Do as many good deeds as the pomegranate has seeds. This is a Jewish New Year’s adage and the inspiration for a festive New Year’s Eve cocktail. If you have fresh pomegranates, add a few seeds to the bottom of each glass for an elegant presentation.
*Stir 1/2 cup of sugar into 3/4 cup of pomegranate juice and hear just enough to dissolve the sugar. Let cool. This will make approximately cup of syrup.
