Pomegranate Cranberry Mint Julep | Fabtastic EatsOkay, Okay! I know you’ve probably done all your Thanksgiving shopping and have zero desire to go to the store for anything else, but I just had to share one last cocktail with you before the holiday…because, really..what are the holidays without a few good drinks? That’s what I thought.

Pomegranate Cranberry Mint Julep | Fabtastic Eats Pomegranate Cranberry Mint Julep | Fabtastic Eats You might see the word Julep and run..no worries, if you’re not a fan of Bourbon, sub it out with Silver Rum or Vodka, both equally delicious! I’m a huge fan of the vodka myself. But I just couldn’t help but add bourbon to this one…for some reason it just screams Holidays and Thanksgiving to me! And while this drink looks super duper Christmas-y…that was totally not my intention and didn’t realize it until I was really throwing it together.

Pomegranate Cranberry Mint Julep | Fabtastic EatsSO if you don’t share a few of these on Turkey day, save it/pin it, for all the upcoming Christmas Parties! It’s so pretty and festive, not to mention a very tasty spirit. looooove it.
