I am usually a wine type of gal – I know it makes me sound old and boring. But I have been getting into cocktails lately and am loving to experiment. Before we go any further, this drink is non-alcoholic and I had fun mixing different ingredients for a totally festive and refreshing drink. And…it’s easy to just add vodka! 

Is this not the perfect drink for holiday parties? I think it is. The mixture of the sage with the pomegranate is very holiday and fall tasting. 

Ingredients:

+ 2 bottles of unflavored sparkling water

+ 1/2 cup still water

+ 3-5 sprigs of fresh sage

+ 2 cups pomegranate seeds

+ 1 tablespoon raw agave

+ 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

+ 1 teaspoon ginger

Directions:

+ In a blender, blend 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds with 1/2 cup still water.

+ Combine ginger, lemon, agave,  3 pieces of sage, and pomegranate seed and water mixture together and cook on low heat for 3 minutes or until hot. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.

+ Pour desired amount of the above combination into each cup to enjoy. Top off with sparkling water and garnish with remaining pomegranate seeds and sage.

Enjoy!
