 Usually my mind is cluttered with all the things I want to share with you guys, but today it’s blank. I don’t know what’s going on but I think my brain is tired of thinking…so I will cut the chase and go straight to the recipe. 

Before I do that, I  need to thank a blogger friend of mine, Dolphia. I met Dolphia through blogging and over the course of two month, we have become great friends, so when she asked me to do an interview ( about food photography) on her blog, I was all game and excited. She’s an amazing person and very generous with her compliments,  don’t take everything she tells you about me  @ face value, it’s her generosity more than anything. Do stop by her blog and check out what I have to say about food photography. Hope you enjoy reading the interview and gawking at the images. Here is the link to the interview :  story of cooks.

There is really no recipe for this drink, but I will try and give you the measurements, it’s certainly not carved in stone so get creative and do your own version. I just love the color and flavors here. Great for the holidays. 

4 cups pomegranate kernel
2 cups of store bought cranberry juice
1 cups white wine 
1 cup club soda or omit the wine and add 2 cups club soda
3 tbsp ginger juice
sugar to taste - I did not add any as the pomegranate was so sweet and the store bough cranberry juice  took care of the sweetness. 

Take the pomegranate kernel and blend in a blender, strain. Mix it with wine, cranberry juice, club soda and ginger. Add sugar if required. Served with some pomegranate kernel - served chilled. 
I though this was amazing, you can warm it up and serve it as a mulled drink, it’s equally delicious.

When serving warm,  add two cups of wine and omit club soda. Add a couple of cloves.
