  1. Finely chop fresh rosemary and grate fresh ginger. Mix with sugar and place on a small plate.
  2. Wet the rims of empty glasses and dip them into the sugar mixture.
  3. Fill glasses with ice.

  • If you're making a large batch ahead of time, wait until just before serving to add the ginger beer so that it doesn't go flat.

  • To make this pomegranate ginger smash into a mocktail, leave out the vodka and use club soda or sparkling water to cut the sweetness a little bit.
