    Blueberry-Pomegranate Trio

    Blueberry Pomegranate drinks

    The wonderful folks at POM Wonderful sent me a free case of their popular Pomegranate Blueberry Juice to do with as I pleased. Well, actually, they encouraged me to try out a few cocktails with the stuff. Which I did -- but the recipe I used for blueberry-pomegranate martinis tasted, as one friend put it, like I'd gotten the recipe from a frat house. Way too strong and way not what I'd like to share with you all. What I would like to share is what I did with the rest of the freebie from POM -- this trio of refreshing Blueberry-Pomegranate goodies:

    Blueberry-Pomegranate Lemonade Spritzer (pictured above)

    Fresh or frozen lemonade

    Pomegranate-blueberry juice

    Seltzer or sparkling water

    For each serving, pour equal amounts of lemonade and pomegranate-blueberry juice into a tall glass. Add seltzer or sparkling water to desired degree of fizziness. Garnish with lemon slices. Ah ... refreshing perfection on a hot summer day!

    Blueberry Pomegranate drinksBlueberry-Pomegranate-Watermelon Granita

    2 cups diced watermelon

    8 ounces pomegranate-blueberry juice

    1 tablespoon honey

    In food processor or blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Pour into dish and freeze overnight or until completely frozen. To serve, scrape shavings of granita into serving dishes. Makes about four servings.

    Vanilla ice cream

    Pomegranate-blueberry juice

    Scoop ice cream into blender (amount depends on how many shakes you're making). Use juice in place of milk typically used for shakes (about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup per serving) and process until desired consistency. Pour into glasses and devour ... slowly ... so you don't get brain freeze. THIS was my favorite of the trio!
