Orange Pomegranate Mocktail

As soon as my friends read this, I’m expecting a good amount of calls, text messages and Facebook Wall posts, all asking the same question….

You made a drink without booze?

Yes, friends – I’m not sure if it’s because I’m maturing, or because I’m getting cheaper by the day – but last week, after a humid, busy day at work, all I wanted was a refreshing beverage and Bravo television. And since I had zero booze in my apartment, I decided to be responsible (by default) and make my first mocktail.

A very simple mocktail, might I add. Three parts POM Wonderful juice, one part orange juice (no pulp) and a handful of frozen blueberries (a.k.a. the “rocks”).

Delicious, refreshing, satisfying and crazy simple. I didn’t even miss the booze.

Is that my phone?

What’s your favorite non-alcoholic beverage to drink in the summertime?


  1. craziness! no really, this looks good. I like to drink sweet tea vodka and lemonade, it doesn't even taste like booze so that counts. ;)

  2. I love a good summer mocktail - nothing is worse than a hangover on a super hot muggy morning. I've been drinking a lot of pineapple juice with a splash of cran and sparkling water. Ordered it at a bar in Austin, TX and the bartender ended up making them for most of the rest of the bar!

  3. Jenna, that mocktail sounds delightful, and so refreshing! This one would also be even better with some sparkling water....

    Daisy - Haha!! I like the way you think!

  4. No matter how old I get, I still love a good Shirley Temple!

  5. You know if I made a mocktail, I would prob get the same reaction from my friends but I'm with you girl! Every now and then I just want a night without booze haha. This sounds so rereshing!

  6. I'm loving this idea of a mocktail! Sometimes all I want to do is sit down with a giant glass of chocolate milk watching a marathon on Bravo, too... ;)
