Persian Pomegranate Cooler

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

This is a typical Persian beverage that is enjoyed by many Iranis and has a flavor that is not unlike a cross between grape juice and lemonade with a touch of flowers. It truly has to be experienced to get the full understanding of how good it is, and it goes wonderfully as a complement to any Middle Eastern meal.

What an unusual drink! This didn't taste like anything I've ever had before, but I loved it. It's a lovely, fancy alternative to a cocktail. Thanks for posting!
