Juice Ice Cubes – The night before serving the drink, prepare pomegranate juice ice cubes.  Simply pour pomegranate juice into ice cube trays and freeze overnight.  Keep the juice ice cubes separate from the drink until serving.


4 ounces vodka, lemon-infused is best

8 ounces sparkling water, lemon flavored

1-2 Tablespoons pomegranate juice, to taste (we like a lot of the juice)

Lemon slices

Mint leaves

  1. Combine the vodka, sparkling water and pomegranate juice.
  2. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice into the mixed drink.
  3. Pour over juice ice cubes and garnish with lemon slices and mint.
