  • 3/4 cup pomegranate arils
  • 2-3 limes
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup white, granulated sugar + 1/4 cup for rimming glasses
  • 2 and 1/3 cups unsweetened cranberry pomegranate juice
  • 24 ounces sparkling water or club soda
  • Lots of crushed or cubed ice


  • PREP: Deseed a pomegranate to get 3/4 cup pomegranate arils. Thinly slice 2-3 limes.
  • MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP: In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the water and 3/4 cup white sugar until the sugar is integrated and completely dissolved. (You don’t have to bring it to a simmer or boil; simply heat until the liquid is clear and all sugar is dissolved, if you pinch some of the mixture with fingers it should feel smooth; if it feels gritty it's not quite done.) Remove from heat and then cool completely. This can be made a week in advance!
  • COMBINE: Fill a large pitcher halfway with ice. Pour in completely cooled simple syrup. Add in the unsweetened cranberry-pomegranate juice. Add in the club soda or sparkling water. Stir together in the pitcher. Add in the sliced limes and pomegranate arils.
  • OPTIONAL GLASS RIM: 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: Enjoy immediately. (To make ahead, combine everything except the ice and sparkling water/soda. Add ice and sparkling water/soda right before serving.)
