Pomegranate Mojito

This cocktail is made using fresh pomegranate juice, lime, mint, sparkling lemonade and topped with fresh Pomegranate seeds.

It’s #ThirstyThursday and we’re back with another mojito recipe. This Pomegranate Mojito is another amazing end of summer cocktail. And will quickly become a fav! I can’t believe we’re half way through September. Time… is flying.

If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a great way to preserve your herbs by making them into ice cubes. And today’s recipe, I’m using those ice cubes for this mojito. It worked perfectly. Being that the main ingredients in a mojito are lime and mint.

This cocktail is super refreshing! The sparkling lemonade added some pizzazz and an additional citrus note + fizz. Which I loveee! This cocktail will be perfect for the holidays too! As pomegranate season is from October-January!
