6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
Sparkling water, as needed
Lime, for garnish

In a small pot set over high heat, combine the pomegranate juice and sugar. Boil, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the juice reduces in volume by half. Let cool completely.

Fill 6 tall glasses with ice cubes. Into each glass, pour 2 tablespoons of the pomegranate syrup, 2 tablespoons gin, and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Stir well, then top off each glass with sparkling water and garnish with a twist of lime.
