Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

When I was reading the Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu on this site, the very first recipe jumped out at me since I love pomegranate juice. I googled to see if I could find a recipe that didn't use cranberry sauce and this recipe was most frequently given. It comes from Giada De Laurentiis by way of Oprah. Oprah chose it for her 2008 Thanksgiving menu. This drink sounds totally tangy and refreshing and it recommended for calming your nerves if you are the head Thanksgiving chef!

  2. Alternately, you may serve the bellinis from a pitcher. Make bellini mixture in a 6- to 8-cup pitcher. Divide pomegranate seeds between 12 champagne flutes, add 1 slice lime and 1 sprig of mint to each glass and pour bellini mixture into each.
  3. To make Simple Syrup: In a saucepan combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Take pan off heat and allow syrup to cool.
