Let’s Muddle Things Up!
This drink is a favorite anytime we want something a little more celebratory than plain old water. To make it you’ll need a muddle. A muddle is a bartenders tool used to crush ingredients, in this case, limes.
SIMPLE SYRUP OR NATURALLY SUGAR FREE STEVIA OPTION:
You can sweeten this drink with a simple syrup made ahead of time, or with liquid Stevia drops. It’s fantastically delicious both ways!
The Recipe: Pomegranate Lime Non-Alcoholic Spritzer
Tips and what you’ll need: When we serve this for parties we set out lime wedges and lime halves, a hand held juicer, a muddle, simple syrup and Stevia drops along with a recipe card with instructions so our guests can make their own spritzer. I prefer to use Pellegrino sparkling water because of it’s alkaline ph balance. Find my Lemon Basil Spritzer here.
A simple mocktail with a simple syrup or low carb stevia sweetened option. If making the simple syrup, be sure to make it at least an hour ahead of time so it has time to cool and then refrigerate. When having a party, we set out all the prepped ingredients with a recipe card so guests can make their own spritzers.
- 1 cup organic granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons simple syrup OR 4-5 drops liquid stevia
- 2 lime wedges
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
- 3/4 cup ice cold sparkling water (I like Pellegrino)
If using simple syrup, make ahead of time and allow to cool: place water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil, lower and simmer for 6 minutes. Allow to cool. If using liquid stevia, skip this step
To make drink: place 2 lime wedges in bottom of glass, muddle (this means smash with your muddling tool)
Add lime juice, pomegranate juice and either simple syrup or stevia drops, and muddle more. Then pour sparkling water into glass.
If desired, add ice, pomegranate seeds or an additional lime wedge to edge of glass. Serve.
