A Pomegranate Mocktail

Happy Friday to you!  Sorry for the premature announcement yesterday as my Quaker/Goodbite debut doesn’t take place until next Friday October 23rd.

I have been drinking POM Juice and Tea for quite a while and I have been reading a lot lately about it.  When I received some giveaway coupons from POM Wonderful I read through some of the literature and I was very impressed.

I was browsing the POM website and decided to try one of the recipes.

It is called a Pomegranate Mocktail.  Fairly simple so I thought I would give it a whirl.  Turned out great.  Have a look.

Ingredients

  • 3/8 cup freshly squeezed pomegranate juice* or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
  • 3/8 cup fresh lemonade
  • 1-1/2 oz. sparkling water

Method

  1. Fill a tall tumbler glass a little more than halfway with ice cubes.
  2. Pour 3/8 cup fresh lemonade into the glass, up to the halfway mark.
  3. Slowly add pomegranate juice. (The goal is to create a mix of half lemonade and half pomegranate juice, so adjust accordingly for the size of your glass.)
  4. Add sparkling water.
  5. Stir and serve.

  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Try and keep the juices you consume as all natural as possible.   I find that way you are not wasting as many calories with unwanted sweeteners in your drinks.

Have a great Friday and a great weekend.  I am working at the house today getting it ready for drywall.  Mrs. Cooking is running a Half Marathon on Sunday so I will be going out in full support with the kiddies.

Take care

I have tried to ‘peel’ a pom before and wanted to rip my hair out. It drove me crazy.

I have been scared to experiment with poms on my own but I need to face my fears :) They are so good!
