Today I’m sharing the most perfect welcome drink for your friends and family, Pomegranate Ginger Spritz. 1. it looks SO festive, 2. Its refreshing and the ginger works so well with the pomegranate juice, and 3. It can be served as a mocktail or cocktail!!
You can prep the syrup ahead of time as well so it’s less work for the day of. Make it in a pitcher to make life easier as well. I made this for thanksgiving and my family loved it, then I made it again for a friends dinner party and it was again a HIT! So I know for sure you friends and family will love it as well.
