Add water, ginger, lime juice, pomegranate juice and sugar to a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in pomegranate seeds and mint leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pomegranate seeds are soft, for about 4-5 minutes. Turn off heat and let the mixture cool.
Discard mint leaves and pomegranate seeds after the mixture has cooled.
Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth. Place in the fridge and use when ready to mx into cocktails.
Ginger Pomegranate Mojito:
In a 10-ounce glass, stir together simple syrup, pomegranate juice and white rum. If you want the mojito sweeter, add more simple syrup.

Gently stir for 5 seconds, then tuck mint sprigs into top of glass, garnish with pomegranate seeds and lime on the rim of the glass.
Insert a tall straw and serve immediately.
For a virgin mojito, skip the alcohol.
