  • 1 tumbler glass
  • 56 mint leaves
  • 4 tablespoons honey simple syrup (see instructions below)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup fresh pomegranate juice (Pom is acceptable, but fresh is much better) You’ll need 2-3 fresh pomegranates for 2 mocktails.
  • 1/4 cup seltzer water
  • crushed ice
  • mint leaves and pomegranate seeds for garnish


  1. Go ahead and make your honey simple syrup–it’s 1:1 with water. We make enough for 2 cocktails. Heat 4 tablespoons of water together with 4 tablespoons of honey, stirring until honey is fully liquified and blended. Let cool to room temp.
  2. While the syrup is cooling, go ahead and section your fresh pomegranates. We love this informative how-to video from Food & Wine.
  3. Then place the seeds in a blender and pulse until blended. Pour through a sieve/strainer into a bowl, pushing on the pulp to get all the juice through. Set aside for a moment.
  4. Get your crushed ice ready and place it into a bowl or cup, also set aside momentarily.
  5. Place mint leaves in your tumbler glass and add the simple syrup. Muddle the mint with a wooden spoon to release it’s flavor and fragrance into the syrup. Add lime juice.
  6. Pour 1/3 cup of pomegranate juice over the syrup and lime. Add crushed ice, seltzer and stir with spoon. Top with fresh mint or lime and pomegranate seeds. Serve and enjoy!
