Pomegranate Ginger Mocktail

Source: nomnompaleo.com adapted by Jim Weber


2 teaspoons
grated ginger
2 cups
pomegranate juice (look for no sugar added, or blend up your own from fruit)
1 liter
sparkling water
pomegranate arils (seeds) (for garnish)


Peel orange skins lightly with a vegetable peeler, taking care not to include much pith (white part). Strips will be used for garnish. 

Juice the orange into a pitcher. Add grated ginger, pomegranate juice, and sparkling water. Add orange strips and pomegranate arils to each glass, then pour in the mocktail. You may want to pour through a strainer to remove the ginger bits.

Note: The drink develops more flavor the longer it sits with the ginger in it.   (Recipe #640)
