Pomegranate Lemonade Spritzers

It's been so hot here.  I mean, I just returned from vacationing in Montana and it was 90 degrees there, but 90  degrees here feels 10x worse. Like, walking outside into the humidity is exhausting. I go ahead and count that as my workout for the day.  I mean, there is sweat involved so it's practically the same thing…right?

This drink is so refreshing, you almost forget you're melting into your chair.  Almost. 

This version is non-alcoholic but adding a flavored vodka would be delish in my opinion. Maybe just an ounce before adding the club soda.  Just thinking out loud here. 

Pomegranate Lemonade Spritzers
Recipe from Just Putzing

  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 4-6 cups water
  • 1 cup simple syrup (1 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar simmered until the sugar dissolves)
  • club soda
  • lemon slices (for garnish)
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix the first four ingredients in a large pitcher. Fill glasses with ice and then pour in a little more then halfway with the pomegranate juice mixture. Fill the remaining portion with club soda and give it a little stir. Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
