Hey everyone! Chelsea back from Chelsea’s Messy Apron 🙂 I hope your holidays are going well so far! And today I have something to make them even better: Sparkling Pomegranate Lemonade! It’s sweet, tangy, and totally delicious, not to mention it’s gorgeously festive!Pomegranate in a bowl.

While lemonade may seem like a summery recipe, this pomegranate lemonade truly makes the best holiday drink! We can’t seem to get enough of it. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also so beautiful and festive looking.

The bright red color of the lemonade, the deep red pop of the pomegranate arils, plus a sprig of mint and you’ve got the most festive holiday beverage!

This lemonade is super simple to make which is a must have in this busy holiday season! It starts with a simple syrup of water + white sugar. Once the two have been combined on the stove-top and cooled, that mixture is added to the pitcher. Next you’ll add the freshly squeezed lemon juice and then the pomegranate juice. I use a pomegranate-cranberry juice, but any pomegranate flavored juice will work. You’ll want to get an unsweetened/natural juice so this drink isn’t overly sweet!

I like to mix that all together and store this in the fridge until it’s ready to serve. Right before serving you’ll add in the sparkling water (I get lemon flavored for an extra burst of fresh lemon flavor) and top with the pomegranate arils. Garnish with a lemon slice and/or fresh mint and these beverages are ready to be enjoyed!
