Make a Bowl of Pomegranate Winter Punch

Get into the holiday spirit with Drogerie’s drink recipe

The lack of hot toddies and mulled ciders around these parts has given you a bad case of winter cocktail envy.

South Beach bar Drogerie is the cure-all for your libation deprivation. Its apothecary-style infusions — mixes of herbs, botanicals, and premium spirits — are cheekily labeled as aphrodisiacs, stimulants, pain-killers, and more. We asked the local mix masters to prescribe a recipe for the ideal party pick-me-up.

Pomegranate Winter Punch
Serves eight

5 pomegranates
½ qt. orange juice
2 tsp. brown sugar
½ bottle (13 oz./375 ml.) cognac
1 bottle French Bordeaux wine

1. Squeeze pomegranates into a large saucepan; add orange juice, brown sugar, and cognac. Cook on low heat for 10 minutes.

2. Pour wine into a large serving bowl and top with warmed ingredients. Stir slowly and garnish with sliced pomegranates.

3. Serve warm and feel better.

Or take your happy pill at The Drogerie at the Albion, 1650 James Avenue, Miami Beach (305-913-1000 or drogeriemiami.com).
