The Belmont Jewel Cocktail

Considered the signature cocktail for the Belmont Stakes, the third race in the Triple Crown, the Belmont Jewel Cocktail is a really great cocktail all summer long with bourbon, lemon, and pomegranate juice.

This is certainly a bourbon forward cocktail. While not part of the original recipe, I like to add a splash of cold sparkling soda to finish it off.
