Pomegranate Mojitos

My husband loves anything pomegranate and anything mojito. We've had pomegranate mojitos in restaurants before, but I decided to surprise him today by having some ready when he got home from work. I knew he would love it!
Ok, ok, you got me. My mint plant is overgrown and I am tired of looking at it. Mojitos, it is!

Pomegranate Mojitos

1 teaspoon sugar (helps the medicine go... oh nevermind.)
1 tablespoon of fresh mint leaves
juice of 1/2 of a lime
1 shot of clear rum
1 shot of pomegranate juice
1 shot of club or lemon-lime soda

Add sugar, mint, and lime juice to a glass. Muddle with the end of a wooden spoon or any such device. Add 3-4 ice cubes to glass, then add rum, juice and soda. Stir to mix and enjoy!

Is 10:30 am too early to drink one of these or can I swap out breakfast OJ for this? DELICIOUS!

I should totally make these - our little mint plant has been in overdrive lately and I just bought some POM!
