A Bitter Late Fall's Day

A couple of weeks ago I made another run at seasonal bitters. The fat pomegranates at all the stores were all the inspiration I needed. The ruby color and rummy background present a host of holiday options.

Pomegranate Orange Bitters

Arils of one large pomegranate
4 oz overproof rum (I used Bacardi 151)
1 oz Grand Marnier

Combine ingredients in a flat-bottomed mixing bowl. Muddle until arils are crushed. Cover and store overnight. Strain into a small bottle.
