lemon-lime pom(mint)granate spritzer recipe


This time of year, I start craving my sangria recipe. Actually, who am I kidding? I crave it year 'round. Unfortunately, I've got a few more weeks until I can indulge in such beverages so I've had to get creative with some things that taste fancy, but are non-alcoholic. This drink was a random combination that I ended up LOVING and had to share with y'all. It's super refreshing, delicious and low calorie. You simply can't go wrong!

Ingredients:
Mint Sparkling Water
POM Juice
Fresh squeezed juice from half a lime
Ice
((optional))
Mint leaves
Lemon & Lime for Garnish

Breakdown:
Fill cup with ice & add:
1-2 parts mint sparkling water (depending on how much you like the flavor, it definitely keeps it from getting too sweet)
3 parts lemon lime soda (sprite)
Squeeze of lime
2 parts POM


Give it a little stir, add a cute straw, and sip away! I added a lemon and a lime slice for garnish, but it would also be tasty & fancy-like for you to add some mint leaves for garnish. You could definitely try this drink with other flavors of sparkling mineral water. The mint just sounded so perfect. I seriously am a BIG fan of mint and come summer-time I try to add it to almost everything I drink...sweet tea, water, mojitos (wink), even soda. 


Enjoy!

love.
