1.5 Cup Pomegranate Juice chilled (or 1/2 Cup Cranberry Juice chilled + 1 Cup Pom Juice Chilled)
A Fistful of Mint Leaves
1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Ginger Juice
Sprite or any Lime Soda chilled
Sugar or Honey to Taste
1/2 Teaspoon of Orange Blossom Water (Optional)

Alcoholic Version:
Add: 1 ounce of Vodka + 1/2 Ounce of Orange Liqueur

Preparation: Muddle the mint leaves (with sugar or honey if you are using it).Combine the pomegranate, cranberry juice, orange blossom water (if you are using it) & ginger juice with the mint leaves. Add Ice & Give it a good shake shake shake.

(For the alcoholic version, add the vodka & the liqueur along with the juice & other things)

Pour it in to individual glasses, half glass each. Fill it up with Sprite or any Lime Soda. Garnish with mint leaves.This is a fantastic drink for outdoor/indoor parties. Prepare the drink & keep it ready chilled. Add the soda just before serving. Garnish with mint.
