What a terrific drink this is Sue. I enjoyed this very much. It was quick and easy to make, excellent tasting, pretty and best of all it uses ingredients that i always have on hand. Thank you so much for sharing, this sweet, tart, tangy, flowery treat. I loved it. Into my Favorites Cookbook for 2013 this goes. Kudos to you.
I am drinking this tasty beverage even as I type this! I scaled it down to one serving and didn't really measure anything, just "eyeballed" it. The orange blossom water really puts it over the top. Thanks so much for sharing this, I will be making it again the next time pomegranate juice goes on sale!
loved this with blueberry pomagrante juice from the freezer
Yummy!! I really enjoyed it & it's quite easy to mix. The orange blossom water can be a challenge to find in Sonoma / Napa area without going into San Raphael, but Whole Spice at Oxbow Market came through for me. I made one very small adjustment; instead of 1/4 cup sugar, I used 1/2 tbl spoon of Raspberry Sugar and the rest refined sugar.
Only one hesitation when recommending this beverage... if the intened audience is not a real fan of pomegranate, this drink will not convert them. Save this tasty creation for those who appreciate such a special fruit!
Really nice combination
Quite nice, but I don't believe we'll be making this one again.
We had this for our zaar cookie bake 'n trade here in Toronto, Canada. I made it into a martini by mixing all but the soda in a pitcher and chilling it. I then poured some into a shaker filled with ice and SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT MORE, then pour into a martini glass that has a tsp of pomegranate seeds in the bottom and top it up with 1/2 soda or sparking mineral water. It was a hit with the zaarinas at my cozy lil do.
Very interesting drink! Was looking for something to use the orange blossom water with and this was the ticket. Will make again with some lebanese food:)
Very nice compliment to my Lebanese theme dinner. Now I want to find other recipes to use the orange blossom water in.
