How to make this non alcoholic spritzer

This pomegranate non alcoholic spritzer is very easy to mix up. It’s simply a combination of soda water, non alcoholic apple cider, pomegranate juice, and fresh squeezed lime juice. Simply combine them all and garnish with lime wedges and pomegranate seeds!

To make the soda water, we use this SodaStream. Can I rave about using a SodaStream for a second? Alex and I were in a habit of drinking a specifically trendy carbonated water product all the time. Instead of buying so many cans of that, we had the idea to get a SodaStream. It’s also a great healthy beverage substitute for soda pop.

Alex used to be a huge pop drinker, and while he hasn’t had the stuff in years, he still enjoys beverages that are more exciting than plain old water. Soda water with some lemon and/or lime wedges is a perfect soda substitute (or a sub for that magical trendy carbonated water), and we drink it often. It’s also fun to experiment with carbonating other beverages, like wine — it makes instant champagne!

To make soda water: Our SodaStream!

We hope you enjoy this cocktail or mocktail! Let us know if you make it; tag us @acouplecooks and leave us a comment below!

    I’m currently planning our Thanksgiving feast using recipes from some of my favorite folks and this just certainly made the drink list (assuming we can get apple cider and pomegranate juice in Iceland). Although I’m gonna have to go with non-optional gin. ;)

    Growing up in a Persian family, I was raised eating pomegranate and it’s one of my favorite winter foods. I’m always looking for new ideas to use it, and can’t wait to try this recipe out!

    This looks lovely! I have a question though, what exactly is your apple cider? Here in the UK, apple cider is alcoholic. Is it some kind of sparkling apple juice for you guys?

      Sasha, thanks for this comment! I didn’t realize apple cider was alcoholic in the UK! In the US, “apple cider” is non-alcoholic (but not sparkling), and “hard cider” is alcoholic. Is this something accessible to you in the UK? I’ll update the recipe too!

        Oh that’s really interesting! Yes and in some cases it is very alcoholic! I guess that we would just use apple juice then, or sparkling apple juice and omit the soda. Unless your apple cider is not the same as apple juice?

          I think any apple juice would be delicious; American apple cider is basically unfiltered apple juice.

          Hi Sasha, I’ve found that the closest equivalent to apple cider in the UK is the Copella cloudy apple juice – it seems to be pretty much the same thing.

    This looks delicious, but I am a little surprised to see your liquid measurements are not in ounces or cups, but rather are metric. Why the departure?

      Haha! I was wondering if anyone would notice :-) After figuring out the 3-1-2 proportion that I liked, mL offered the easiest way to up it to 4 servings. Sorry if its confusing!

    This drink sounds right up my street. Although I love a good cocktail, I’m quite partial to a non-alcoholic version too and definitely enjoy drinking something that’s a bit more special than water, particularly around the holidays.
