Pomegranate Lime Rickey

I was super excited when the lovely folks at POM Wonderful asked if I would be interested in sampling their pomegranate juice a few weeks ago. I’d noticed so many great pomegranate juice recipes on the blogosphere, and couldn’t wait to try a few. The juice is really delicious and packs a nutritional punch. It’s so good, in fact, that it all somehow disappeared before I had the chance to develop a recipe with it! I replenished our stock and hid the new bottle in the back of our fridge where my hubby doesn’t poke around.

I decided to keep things simple and do a twist on the classic lime rickey. I had never heard of a lime rickey before moving to the East Coast. It’s a traditional New England beverage that is served at all the little beach places on the coast. It’s usually a mix of club soda, lime juice, and simple syrup. I wasn’t in the mood for a super sweet drink, so I decided to skip the simple syrup step and just mix a little seltzer water, pomegranate juice, and fresh lime juice. It was very refreshing and I enjoyed mine with a splash of gin!  Thanks POM Wonderful!

  1. This drink does sound so refreshing! (I’ve never heard of a lime rickey either) Don’t you hate it when the hubby eats/drinks something you need for a recipe?! :)

  2. I’m always looking for a good, new non-alcoholic drink to add to the mix. My boyfriend is a fan of cranberry and seltzer. I think I’ll pick up some Pom and give this a try!

  3. They sent me Pom too and I hid a bottle in the back of the fridge ( the last one) thinking I’d do the same thing make something, then while I was watching tv my hubby walks in the livingroom with the bottle….Look what I found in the back of the fridge!!! UGH!!!

  4. Mmm, I knew from the title that I would love this drink!! You’ve done it again, Kerstin. This drink sounds absolutely fabulous. So glad you got to sample POM; it’s so yummy!!
