I enjoy the flavor of lemons and pomegranates so I combined the two flavors for an outdoor party drink. It turned out to be a hit with my adult guests!
It was fun to let the guests attempt to figure out the exact combination of ingredients I used...pomegranate molasses was the biggest surprise as most people have not ever heard of it or used it!
Try it and let me know what you think.

  • 3 c

How to Make Mediterranean Cocktail


  1. Chill six tall glasses in the freezer about half an hour before service.
  2. Combine all liquid ingredients in a large bowl to combine.
  3. When ready to serve cocktails: Add two or three ice cubes to each chilled glass; fill with cocktail and garnish with a sugared, split, lemon slice hung on the rim...add a straw and drink up!
  4. Hint:If you don't have access to the pomegranta molasses you may try substituting pure pomegranate juice that has been heated until reduced by half. POM Wonderful is the best, generally available,juice brand,,,other brands are often adulterated with other juices and too much sugar added...flavor is not at all good! Also, if you can find fresh pomagranates at the store, use some of the whole seeds swirled into each beverage glass, as a tasty and pretty addition. The seeds are like small jewels floating in the liquid.
