You guys it is SO hot in California right now. We are already in triple digits at the beginning of June. The heat makes it difficult to think about cooking and at night I am like- “Hey kids who wants a smoothie for dinner?” “Oh you want real food? Boo!”
So I have been experimenting with different drinks for the last few weeks and here is one to cool off this summer. This is a slightly fancier version of lemonade and it is super simple to make.
This sparkling pomegranate lemonade is one of my favorite treats when I go to Nordstrom. They have this in the cafe and it is just delicious. I wanted to try and make this myself at home and this recipe is very simple and perfect for summer entertaining.
My children aren’t huge fans of fresh pomegranate but they actually love this drink so don’t be scared off if pomegranate is normally a little tart for your taste. You might consider adding a touch more sugar if you do like drinks on the sweeter side.
Here is what you need for the lemonade:
