Pomegranate Lemonade

The latest issue of Bon Appetit came in the mail on the same day that I happened to buy a bottle of POM (you know, that pomegranate juice that everyone seemed to be talking about and using, um, yesterday — yes, I am a little behind on that trend). So anyway, it just seemed like fate when I flipped open the magazine and the first thing I saw was a recipe for Pom-Ade, or Pomegranate Lemonade. Totally freaky.

Both of those things happened a few weeks ago. But I didn’t end up cracking open the POM or trying the lemonade until my old partner in crime, Sonja, came to visit recently for lunch. (You’ve already read about several other things on the lunch menu – the delicious sandwich with sun-dried tomato pesto and the yummy baby spinach salad with candied almonds.) This seemed like it would be a tasty mocktail for our lunch . . . and it was.

So, we sipped at this delicious, slightly bubbly and antioxidant rich drink (perfect for Sweetnicks‘ ARF/5-A-Day Tuesdays) while we caught up on life and career (did I mention that we met while working together at a newspaper and bonded over a horse assignment? It’s quite the story – but I’ll leave you guessing).

I will however share the drink recipe. Enjoy!

Pomegranate Lemonade
serves 4
recipe from Bon Appetit – February 2008

2 cups lemonade (I prefer Stew Leonard’s brand here in Connecticut, or Simply Lemonade)
1 cup club soda
1/2 cup pomegranate juice (I used POM brand)
ice

Pour lemonade, club soda and pomegranate juice into a nice pitcher. Stir lightly. Add ice. Pour into nice, clear glasses.

NOTE: Bon Appetite suggests adding a tablespoon of vodka per glass for an adult version of this tasty drink. Wehad it virgin though . . .

    This looks great – I tried pomegranate juice in a cafe for the first time this week and adored it so will put away this recipe for when I manage to buy some

  2. I made this for the first time tonight. I messed up the proportions concerning the lemonade a bit but eventually worked it out. Husband said that it was excellent with vodka.
