Pomegranate and lemon spritzer

sparkling water mixed with fresh pomegranate and lemon juice

Just the name–Pomegranate and Lemon Spritzer–makes my mouth water. It’s fruity, but not too sweet. Tart, but refreshing. ThisĀ pomegranate and lemon drink is perfect for the whole family; and perfect for sipping in the summertime. In fact, you’ll want to make multiple pitchers of this because it will go fast! If you have kids, a spritzer is a great alternative to soda. It’s way healthier as it’s packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, and potassium. Plus,Ā because it’s made with sparkling water, it still has that bubbly quality that kids love.

This fizzy homemade beverage is easy to make with just a few simple ingredients too: freshĀ pomegranates, lemons, sugar, sparkling water, and aromatic mint. Squeeze, stir, chill, and enjoy!

And… while this is a specialĀ drink to make in bulk for holiday get-togethers, picnics, and barbecues, we have a few ideas to make it an adults-only cocktail, too.

  • Add a shot of cucumber vodka
  • StirĀ in someĀ white wine
  • Top with Champagne
  • Make it a margarita with blanco tequila
  • Pour in a bottle of ginger beer

 

We love how versatile this is! It can stand alone, and it can serve as a bright summer mixer. Get the recipe for this Pomegranate and Lemon Spritzer over at Apron and Sneakers.
