Mojitos are light and refreshing - add pomegranate juice and arils, and you've got a festive party concoction.
This is a great treat for Halloween or anytime you want to add some color to your festivities!

2 tsp. organic cane sugar
8 large fresh mint leaves (plus extra for garnish)
1 T. pomegranate juice
2 T. pomegranate arils
4 T. club soda
- In a shaker or other container, mix lime juice, sugar and mint leaves. Muddle by pressing with the end of a wooden spoon to release the flavor of the leaves and fully incorporate the ingredients.
