If you’re wanting to have a little fun, but don’t want to drink empty calories at brunch, you’ve found the right drink recipe! I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of Moscow mules so I figured adding in some POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice would take this drink up a notch. Added flavor and nutrition, you can’t beat it!
Speaking of nutrition…let’s talk about the pomegranate juice in this recipe for a sec. I used POM Wonderful 100% Juice mainly because it is powered by antioxidants. I love that the pomegranate is whole-pressed, meaning a unique blend of polyphenol antioxidants from two whole pomegranates – including its fruit, pith and rind – is found in each 8 oz bottle. TWO pomegranates!
Also, some of the current research that includes POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice uses 8 oz per day in its studies on muscle strength recovery, memory and cognition, microbiome, and more.

Brunch Pomegranate Moscow Mules
Brunchin'? Sunday Funday? Whatever you are up to this #CrazyHealthy drink is perfect for the occasion?
- 8 oz. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
- 1.5 cups Ginger beer
- 1 cup ice, cubed
- 2 jiggers vodka
- the juice from half of a lime
- 3 Tbsp. fresh mint, roughly chopped plus extra for garnish
- 1 Tbsp. salt garnish on rim
- 1 lime sliced for garnish
Infuse the pomegranate juice with chopped mint and let sit for 15 minutes. (Optional, but this really helps the juice absorb the mint flavor!)
Strain to discard mint. If desired, salt the rim of each copper mug.
Then in each mug, place 1/2 cup ice, 4 oz. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice, 1/2 jigger vodka, lime juice, 3/4 cup ginger beer, stir to combine and garnish with more fresh mint and a lime wedge. Enjoy!
