How will this mocktail with pomegranate juice make your life easier?
This pomegranate mocktail recipe calls for 3 ingredients and can be used in other drinks if you're hosting a party with a cocktail/mocktail bar. You can add vodka or gin to this exact recipe to make a great (and still really easy) adult drink.
Here are a few of my other favorite special mocktails: mimosa mocktail, sparkling apple cider mocktail, tart cherry spritzer, Starbucks copycat passion tea lemonade, & 5 minute watermelon limeade.
What makes this pomegranate spritzer mocktail so good?
- Pomegranate juice
- Sparkling water
How do I make this non alcoholic pomegranate spritzer?
Make your mocktail by adding a few ice cubes to a tall glass. Pour about 1 tablespoon of 100% pomegranate juice, then 1 cup of sparkling water into the glass.
Finish up by squeezing juice from ¼ lime into the drink and stir. Serve your pomegranate mocktail immediately.
- 100% pomegranate juice will be more flavorful than pomegranate juice cocktail or mixed pomegranate juice. I recommend 100% pomegranate juice for this pomegranate mocktail.
- Turn it into a cocktail by adding gin or vodka OR replace the sparkling water with champagne. There are lots of options for this drink.
A spritzer, like this pomegranate mocktail is made with sparkling water or a sparkling alcoholic beverage. I can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
If you want to enjoy the health benefits of pomegranate juice, grab 100% pomegranate juice at the store. POM pomegranate juice and other brands sell 100% pomegranate juice. Pomegranate juices mixed with other juices may vary in nutrient profile.
Here are a couple of my favorite mocktails: Cranberry Smash Mocktail, Sparkling Apple Mocktail, Mimosa Mocktail, and Tart Cherry Spritzer.
