Low Carb Pomegranate and Ginger Gin Bennett with Limes

Here’s What You Need For These Sugar Free Vampire Bite Cupcakes:​

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces dry gin of choice (we used Bombay Sapphire)
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tbsp fresh lime juice)
  • 1.5 ounces pomegranate juice (we use Pom Wonderful)
  • Dash of Angostura bitters to taste (we use about 1/2 a tsp)
  • Diet ginger beer to top the drink (we like Diet Goslings ginger beer)
  • Lime wheels for garnish

Recipe Notes:

This drink is inspired by the classic Gin Bennett cocktail, which uses a dry gin, Angostura bitters, fresh squeezed lime juice, and simple syrup. We recently found out that the Bennett is actually a variation of the Gin Gimlet! The more you know…
To make this cocktail lower and carbs and give it a ginger and pomegranate spin, we add diet ginger beer for sweetness and flavor, plus a bit of pomegranate juice. We do realize that pomegranate juice has some sugar in it, so we just use a small amount. The pomegranate juice and ginger beer allows us to skip the simple syrup, and adds a ton of flavor to this drink.

We’d also like to note that this recipe makes 2 cocktails. If you’d like to make a large batch, simply add all ingredients (except ice and diet ginger beer) to a punch bowl and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours before serving. Right before serving, add in ice and ginger beer to the mixture. You will want to serve it in glasses with ice too, so that the drink isn’t too strong.

Diet Ginger Beer: You can substitute any ginger beer you want for this drink, but our favorite is Diet Goslings Ginger Beer. If you aren’t concerned with the sugar content, feel free to use whichever brand is your favorite. For those of you following a flexible low carb diet, Diet Goslings will work perfect and it tastes amazing. If you are strict keto, use Reed’s Sugar Free, which is sweetened with erythritol or Zevia ginger beer which is sweetened with stevia. If you opt for a ginger beer with regular sugar, be aware this will increase the calories in this drink. Make sure to make note of that if you are watching your calories.
