Double Berry Mocktail
The fusion of pomegranate juice, mint, and fresh fruit, topped with sparkling water, creates a little sweetness to complement the hint of sour in this refreshing drink. Garnish with a slice of lime and extra berries for a fancy cocktail look while in the comfort of your own home.
First, use a cocktail muddler to gently press the berries and limes together in a mason jar. A pint-sized jar with a lid is ideal. Pour in the pomegranate juice and shake with a few ice cubes until well combined and chilled.
Top off with your favorite sparkling water. Garnish, then drink it up! Excess will chill in the refrigerator for up to four days.
- Substitute with lemons if you don’t like the taste of lime.
