Valentine's Mocktail ~ Orange Pomegranate Mocktail
This recipe makes 4-6 drinks depending on what kind of glass that you use.
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1/4 cup cranberry juice
1/4 cup lemon juice (I used the juice of 1 Meyer Lemon)
1/2 cup sugar (I used Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar)
2 star anise
Lemon Lime Soda
In small sauce pan combine juices, sugar and star anise. Over medium heat bring juices to a boil and boil for one minute, stirring occasionally until sugar is completely melted.
Remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes. Strain.
To serve, fill glass with 4-5 tbsp juice mixture and top up with Lemon Lime Soda. Add pomegranate arils (optional) for garnish.
This juice tasted good by itself and the next time I make it I am going to decrease the sugar as it tasted sweet to me. I loved the flavour that Star Anise gives to the juices. h
