Persian Pomegranate Cooler

"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."

  • (Note: can use fresh squeezed pomegranate juice or a commercial brand such as Pom, which is available year-round; orange blossom water should be available in Middle Eastern or Latino markets.) Mix together pomegranate juice, lemon juice, orange blossom water and sugar until sugar dissolves.
  • Pour 5 ounces of mixture into a glass and slowly add 5 ounces (or more to taste) of club soda, stirring slowly.
  • Add several ice cubes to chill, and serve.

    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!

    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!
