Another Tuesday, and another ARF/5-A-Day roundup is here. Nicholas and I were on our own tonight with The Husband working late, and we started dinner with a drink (non-alcoholic, thank you very much) that’s perfect for today. Called the Pom Pom, when I saw this recipe in the May issue of InStyle magazine, I knew it would make an appearance here. A little too tart for my taste, the ingredients certainly have your ARF bases covered.
The Pom-Pom (serves 4)
3 cups chilled unsweetened cranberry juice
3/4 cup chilled pomegranate juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
6 packets of no-calorie sweetener
3 cups chilled club soda
In large pitcher, combine cranberry juice, pomegranate juice and lime juice. Stir in sweetener until dissolved. Add club soda and pour into glasses.
