Pomegranate Basil Spritzer
The holidays are a time for entertaining. This busy season of our lives is full of social gathers around the same theme of food. One area of party planing that typically gets neglected is the beverage department. Soda, coffee and water are the typical offerings. Here is a delicious non-alcoholic beverage that is unusually tasty. This spritzer is a beautiful addition to a holiday spread when served in a glass pitcher. So if you are looking for a lightly, sweet alternative to the “same-ole, same-ole”, you’ll enjoy this colorful showstopper bursting with sweetness and healthy dose of 0mega-3s. If you want to add a little kick, add 1 oz. vodka to each glass.
*Some guests may prefer the drink to be muddled while others will enjoy eating the seeds and basil leafs.
