If you don't drink, but still want to look sophisticated this holiday season with a fancy beverage in hand, this pomegranate mojito mocktail is for you! It's the perfect blend of sweet and tart flavors. And do I even need to mention how gorgeous it is?
Serve This Pomegranate Mojito Mocktail at Your Parties
I made this drink with Thanksgiving in mind, but it clearly looks more like a Christmas or New Year's beverage. However, this is definitely something you should serve at all holiday dinners and parties! Your guests will be pleased as punch with this beautiful refresh-mint. (That's a solid pun right there.)
I tried out the recipe with my little guys as the critics, and I can confidently say it's kid-tested, mother-approved. Also, it only takes about five minutes to make!
You can create a bar station for Thanksgiving guests, both small and grown, to make their own pomegranate mojito mocktail. And then pull everything out a few weeks later for your Christmas parties and dinners! It's one less thing to worry about, and we all need to simplify our lives during the holidays, right?
If you're on the hunt for clean and elegant highball glasses, I recommend these crystal glasses. Sparkling gold flatware is also essential for a holiday dinner, and this set from Anthropologie is lovely.
I really hope you try out this pomegranate mojito mocktail! Grab the recipe below and enjoy.
