This sweet-tart, aromatic punch gets a ton of flavor and a rosy hue from pomegranate juice that’s reduced to a syrup with fresh ginger and cardamom. St. Germain elderflower liqueur adds fragrant sweetness. The recipe comes from a member of the Food52 online community, a veterinarian from Portland, Oregon whose screen name is hardlikearmour.
