This recipe is amazing!! I made it once and now it is requested every year! The ginger part seems time consuming but it is worth it. I put the extra pomegranate seeds in to float and look pretty. It's a tasty little snack to eat while drinking, or others just leave them in the cup. It is so bright and beautiful...darker than it is in the picture. It screams Christmas or Thanksgiving. It make it for Christmas mostly. Lovely!!
I did a test run on this tonight, to try it out before Thanksgiving. Teens and adults all loved it. The ginger syrup prevents the drink from being too sweet. Very refreshing. I will definitely make it on Turkey Day, and so will the folks that taste - tested with me.
