Pomegranate Spritzer Recipe Method

To make large pomegranate ice cubes, divide pomegranate arils/seeds between 2 x 6-hole king ice cube trays. Fill with water, place in the freezer for 24 hours or until frozen.

To make the orange simple syrup, combine water, sugar and orange peel in a medium saucepan and
place over medium-high heat. Stir to combine.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat, strain to remove the peel and allow syrup to cool. Transfer to a jug and chill until
ready to use.

Use the Aarke Carbonator 3 Sparkling Water Maker to carbonate your chilled water, then add the
pomegranate cranberry juice and simple syrup to a large pitcher and stir.

Place pomegranate ice cubes in glasses and pour over spritzer mixture.

Garnish glasses with rosemary sprig if desired.

Tip: You can buy Pomegranate arils/seeds in the freezer section of your local supermarket.
