Taste Maker: Sparkling Pomegranate Juice

This mocktail is the perfect addition to your holiday entertaining!


  • 3/4 cup (118g) pomegranate seeds

  • 2-3 limes

  • 3/4 cup (160g) water

  • 3/4 cup (151g) white sugar + 1/4 cup for rimming glasses

  • 2 and 1/3 cups (513g) unsweetened cranberry pomegranate juice

  • 24 ounces (687g) club soda sparkling water, or sparkling soda

  • Lots of crushed or cubed ice

  • Optional: fresh mint, cinnamon sticks


  • Deseed a pomegranate to get 3/4 cup pomegranate arils.

  • Thinly slice 2-3 limes.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the water and 3/4 cup white sugar until the sugar is completely integrated.

  • Fill a large pitcher halfway with lots of ice. Pour in the simple sugar mixture of water and sugar.

  • Add in the unsweetened cranberry-pomegranate juice.

  • Add in the club soda or sparkling water. I used 1 bottle of mandarin lime sparkling water and 1 bottle of sparkling pomegranate soda (each bottle was 12 ounces).

  • Stir together in the pitcher. Add in the sliced limes and pomegranate arils.

  • If desired, rim your glasses in sugar! Dip the top of the glass into a bowl filled with water and then into a bowl filled with sugar.

  • Pour the drink into the sugar rimmed glasses. Add a slice of lime if desired.

  • Enjoy immediately. (To make ahead, combine everything except the ice and sparkling water/soda. Add ice and sparkling water/soda right before serving.)

Cheers to a delightfully sweet treat!
