It should be easy to make a good non-alcoholic cocktail but it’s actually not. Without alcohol, a cocktail needs the tart bite of citrus or it feels like you’re just drinking fruit punch. Blending pomegranate juice with freshly squeezed lime and serving it in a martini glass really delivers that sophisticated cocktail experience, even though it is zero-proof.


  • 2 cups chilled sparkling water, such as Pellegrino
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate juice, such as Pom Wonderful
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (2 limes)
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds and lime slices, for serving



Place four martini glasses in the freezer to chill for at least 30 minutes.

Pour the sparkling water, pomegranate juice, and lime juice into a large pitcher. Add some ice and stir for 30 seconds to chill the drink. Strain the mixture into the prepared martini glasses, add a few pomegranate seeds and a slice of lime to each glass and serve ice cold.

If you want to make a larger batch for a crowd, combine the sparkling water, pomegranate juice, and lime juice in a large pitcher and serve in highball glasses filled with ice. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and a slice of lime.
