a tasty sip :: Pom & sparkling water

While searching for foodie inspiration for the vet clinic Christmas party at our house a few weeks ago, I came across this delicious signature cocktail.  Inspired, I bought pomegranate juice and some Prosecco, and then I also bought sparkling water for the pregnant girl (ie. me).  

I gave the combination a try at the party and was totally hooked!  The sparkling water and tart juice are a refreshing combination.  It's like drinking a fruit soda but with all-natural sugar.  

Want to try?  It's pretty simple...

Gather sparkling water and either Pom or another juice.  I tried this Blueberry-Pomegranate juice because it was less expensive, but it's too sweet for me.  I like the tangy kick of pure pomegranate juice!  (The price of Ocean Spray, however, is sweeter than the price of Pom.) 

Thankfully, sparkling water is cheap in Italy; I bought this sparkling water for about 40 cents a bottle.

Pour yourself some sparkling water and then splash in juice to your taste.  I guesstimate that I add 2-3 tablespoons of juice.

And that's all there is to it.  Kick back and rehydrate with this refreshing mocktail!


  1. Sounds delicious!!! Love sparkling water... though it isn't as cheap here as it is in Italy!

  2. Looks yummy!! I am SO glad I found your blog! I actually grew up in Italy when I was 6 for a while because my mom is from there :)

  3. I have become quite the fan of apfelshole while living here in Germany (sparkling mineral water with apple juice)

  4. That looks delicious! I love the shot where you're pouring the juice into the water and you can see the color running.


let's have a conversation!
