Thanks so much for joining us today. We are raising our glasses today. Mine is filled with a non-alcoholic version of this drink.
For those who do not know me I’ll fill you in on a little secret. I’m not allowed to have alcohol, like not even a drop, not even a smidge. I have something called IBS and for me alcohol is a serious trigger.
I haven’t had a drink in 7 years. I’ve had maybe 2 glasses in the last 20 years. So, how I got wrangled into heading up Cocktail Day is still a mystery to me. A hilarious mystery none-the-less.
I’ve had so much fun doing this with Liz and Donna. I’m so glad they had my back since I had lots of technical questions for them.
I had a ton of fun planning what to make. I wrestled with how to handle this since lots of my readers know I can’t drink. So a really good friend of mine suggested doing punch. She was right on the money.
When we throw parties this is just the kind of thing we make. So I dug through my recipe notebooks. I haven’t thrown a party in some time but luckily I had some of my old ones in an old notebook.
This one is super versatile and you can swap out ingredients easily, and adjust the sweetness based on your own taste. I love recipes like this one.

- 8 cups of lemon-lime flavoured carbonated drink use sparking wine if making making this an alcohol-friendly version
- 1 and 1/2 cups cups Pomegranate Juice
- 1/4 cup sugar more if you have a sweet tooth
- 2 oranges sliced thinly, use the middle slices, not the ends
- 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
- 4 cups of ice
- Garnish: fresh mint
In a large bowl or pitcher mix the carbonated drink (or sparkling wine if making an alcohol-friendly version) with the Pomegranate juice and sugar. Add sugar slowly if using carbonated drinks in case it bubbles up. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
Add the orange slices and pomegranate seeds. Mix again.
Right before serving add the ice.
At the last minute add the mint. It will over-power your drink if you add it too soon. Stir well.
Serve with a big old pomegranate party punch loving smile!
