I recently found a bunch of gorgeous embossed glass goblets on Zulily. Have you ever seen these at french cafes or patisseries? I love the intricate patters, the lively colors and the shape of the glassware. There is an amazingly beautiful cheese shop in Longmont that I would gladly spend my mornings at everyday that has a wide assortment of these glasses that they leave out on a table for guests to grab water when they are eating at the small cafe. I absolutely love them, and wanted to come up with a deliciously fancy summer drink to serve in them this summer. This Hula Lemonade may not have anything in common with a french country inspired glass- but it is sweet, intricate and refreshing just like these little beauties.
This recipe is more like a lemonade punch- pineapple and pomegranate pair perfectly for a delicious, sweet and sightly tart drink that isn’t overwhelming and still quite refreshing on a hot summer day. The addition of soda water or sparkling water helps balance out the flavor- and bubbles are always welcome in a refreshing summer drink to me!
If you’d like to keep this cool without watering it down, you can toss a bunch of fresh fruit in the freezer before serving and add them as ice cubes when it’s time to drink. The fruit is a lovely addition and makes the drink even prettier!
If you’d like to kick this lemonade up a bit for people 21+, add an ounce of vodka or rum for every 6 ounces of juice.
- 12 ounces POM Hula Juice
- 12 ounces tart lemonade
- 2 ounces pineapple juice
- 8 ounces sparkling water or soda water
- fresh berries, to garnish
- In a large pitcher, mix ingredients.
- To keep cool, drop a bunch of frozen berries in the juice so that it isnt watered down by ice cubes!
