Pomegranate Italian Soda



Pomegranate Italian Soda:
- Club Soda, chilled
- Ice
- Pomegranate seeds, for garnish
- Pomegranate syrup (I made this at home by boiling pomegranate seeds with sugar and some water and then smooshing it to release the flesh from the seed and then straining it when it was thick or the consistency of a syrup - it thickened up a bit in the fridge) 

Add as much syrup as desired into a glass with ice, if it's not sweet enough for your taste add some simple syrup (cooled, you can make it by mixing equal parts water and sugar and heating until it comes to a boil then removing from heat and pouring into a glass jar, once cooled place in fridge for future drinks) 

Pour club soda over top and garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds, mint or orange/lemon slices.

This is a gorgeous refreshing drink for the holiday and since we have so many warm days this winter over here sometimes you just need something refreshing to complement the weather. 

Enjoy!
