I got this recipe from my Holiday Entertaining cookbook. This juice combination is so tasty and refreshing. A great everyday drink or for parties.
To make this an Adults Only drink: Add vodka, rum or gin (I've used regular & flavored vodkas like citrus, raspberry, etc).
I also like to jazz up the ice cubes by placing lemon zest & pomegranate seeds in each section of the ice cube tray(s), then fill them with water (or cranberry juice) and freeze until solid.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Oh so fresh and fruity! The Crew and I had a tough time finding Meyer lemons out of season (Dec-April), so we used regular lemons instead. Well, let me tell you, that didn't hurt the recipe a bit! The flavors are simply delightful.
ice cubes or pomegranate ice cubes (see my variation note)
ounces pomegranate juice
ounces cranberry juice
ounces fresh meyer lemon juice
ounces fresh lime juice
ounces sparkling water
fresh mint leaves, finely shredded
How To Make
Test Kitchen Tips
Try letting the prepared drink sit a bit to let the flavors meld, then strain to remove the mint leaves.
Fill a pitcher half full with the ice cubes. Add the pomegranate juice, cranberry juice, lemon & lime juices, 12 fl oz. of the sparkling water (save the rest for another batch), and the shredded mint leaves. Stir until well blended.
Fill 6 tall glasses with ice. Pour the mixture into the glasses and serve.
