Pomegranate Lemonade

We are officially having a heat wave... Daily temperatures have hit over 90F more than 3 days in a row and while it does mean we've had beautifully sunny weather, it's also been oppressively hot. The danger in this weather is that you become dehydrated so quickly doing the simplest things. This morning watering we were already sweating buckets to the point we put off any other yard work till later! So what better way to stay hydrated and refreshed than some cool, delicious, tartly sweet Pomegranate Lemonade.

This refreshing fruity lemonade is the perfect combination of sweet and tart; great for relaxing and rehydrating on a these hot summer days.

Here is my recipe for Pomegranate Lemonade:
Makes 1L

1/3 cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 cup Pomegranate Juice, unsweetened
3 cups Ice Water
1/2 cup Sugar
Thinly sliced Lemon for Garnish

1. Combined pomegranate juice, lemon juice, and stir in sugar till it dissolves. Add Ice water and stir well.
2. Serve over ice ice, and top with a slice of lemon.

Enjoy and Stay Cool!
