Here in Los Angeles, I feel like I live in the heart of aguas frescas. As of late, I have been noticing that all the aguas have a new friend that is being made side by side with the horchata or tamarindo. Now standing loud and proud is the pomegranate mojito. The word “mojito” threw me off at first, I associate the word with a boozy drink, but this version is a sober one. I guess the pomegranate mojito was made with kids in mind. I find you can enjoy it either way.

The mixture of mint and pomegranate create a Christmas color drink.

Pour in the lemonade. I used a store bought variety, but a homemade lemonade will do the job just fine. Either way is a win.
Mix 8 of 8
Make sure to mix the mojito every time you serve the drink. The pomegranate arils always sink to the bottom of the pitcher and for an equal part fruit it is good to give it a stir.
