#6 Summer Mocktail: Pomegranate Mule

Thinking about family gatherings over the summer or any time of year, these mocktails could also be a fantastic way for grandparents to connect with grandchildren of all ages! The bright colors and fizzy flavors combined with the antioxidants make it good for all of us – and a fun, sassy break from sugary sodas or iced teas.

Pomegranate Mule 

This one is so easy to make and I could drink it all day! Personally, I love pomegranate so I use a 1:1 ratio of pomegranate juice and ginger beer. Squeeze some lime on top and it’s perfect! If you love to fresh juice your fruit, and you’ve got real pomegranates, keep some seeds aside to garnish your mule! Add a sprig of rosemary and it’ll look five-star fancy. To turn this into a real cocktail, add a shot of your preferred liquor. 

Alongside all the benefits of ginger from the ginger beer, pomegranate brings a lot to the table as well. Used for thousands of years for its health benefits, it’s packed with antioxidants and is known to help improve a number of heart conditions like high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and atherosclerosis.
