It’s the end of fall ya’ll and we are moving into a festive time of year, which means lots of parties and entertaining. I wanted to share with you a recipe for a delicious pomegranate drink that can be made with or without hard cider. My daughter loved this because she could have her own non-alcoholic version and feel like a grown up. This recipe also gives back and I love a good cause.

Apple Pomegranate Fizz Cocktail
You can find the recipe to this delicious drink here on West Elm or below:
This festive drink is easy to prepare for a crowd. Consider making one batch with nonalcoholic sparkling cider and the other with hard cider to satisfy everyone.
¼ cup sugar
1 (4-inch) piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
2 cups chilled unsweetened pomegranate or açai juice
1 quart chilled sparkling cider or hard apple cider
Combine 1/2 cup water, sugar and ginger in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain out ginger; you should have about 1/3 cup syrup.
Have 6 cocktail glasses ready. Pour about 2 teaspoons ginger syrup and 1/3 cup pomegranate juice into each glass and top with sparkling cider. Reserve remaining syrup for another use (or more cocktails!).
