For a summertime drink that’s refreshing, light on calories, but big on flavor, my dad Larry came up with the perfect concoction: a summery pomegranate punch.
3 ounces of 100% pomegranate juice
Sparkling lime-flavored mineral water (no sugar added)
1/2 small lime or key lime squeezed or used as a garnish
Fill a tall glass with ice, then fill with sparkling water. Top it off with the pomegranate juice and just a squeeze of lime.
For the kids, combine grape juice and a dash of the sparkling mineral water.
Tip: I like Crystal Geyser’s Natural Lime Flavor Sparkling Mineral Water, and R.W. Knudsens’ Just Pomegranate can be found in the juice section (Pom Juice will also work).
