You can look for pomegranate seeds in several areas of the grocery store. They are often found in containers near the produce section with other prepared fruits or depending on the season, as fresh whole fruits in the main produce area. If you are selecting a whole fruit, be sure to check for bruising as ripe pomegranates are very delicate.

You can also find the seeds (called arils) that have already been removed and frozen, which will work fine for this recipe. It’s a great option when you can’t find fresh.

Ingredients
 
 

For the Pomegranate Ice Cubes:

  • 4 cups water - approximately
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds - (one large pomegranate should have enough seeds)

For the Pomegranate Syrup:

  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water

For the Mojito Mocktail:

  • 1 cup pomegranate syrup - or to taste (from above)
  • 40 fresh mint leaves - 8-10 for each glass
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • Pomegranate ice cubes - from above
  • 4 cans club soda or sparkling water - approximately
  • Lime wedges - to garnish

Instructions
 

For the Pomegranate Ice Cubes:

  • Sprinkle some pomegranate seeds into each cavity of 2 ice cube trays.
  • Fill the ice cube trays, almost to the top, with the water.
  • Freeze until the ice cubes are frozen solid, about 4 hours or overnight.

For the Pomegranate Syrup:

  • Add the pomegranate seeds to a small saucepan. Crush them with a potato masher or fork to release some of the juices.
  • Add the sugar and water.
  • Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Let the syrup cool.
  • Strain the syrup through a fine mesh strainer. Discard the seeds. If making the syrup ahead of time, keep the syrup covered and refrigerated. A squeeze bottle works well.

To Assemble the Mojito:

  • In each of 4 tall glasses, add 4 tablespoons pomegranate syrup, 8-10 mint leaves and 2 tablespoons lime juice.
  • Fill the glasses with the pomegranate ice cubes, almost to the top.
  • Top each glass with club soda. Use a long spoon to gently mix it all together.
  • Garnish with lime wedges and serve!

Equipment

2 Ice cube trays
Fine mesh strainer
Small saucepan

Notes

  • The syrup and ice cubes can be prepared days ahead of time.
  • If you can find frozen pomegranate seeds, this will help cut down on the prep time! They can be used directly in the ice cubes or you can thaw them in the refrigerator ahead of time.
  • Make sure to protect your clothing when working with pomegranate seeds because the juice can easily spray and stain.
