Pomegranate Lime Tea

A few months ago, I decided to stop buying diet soda.  My husband and I used to drink a lot of it, but we are now living diet soda free!  I was always somewhat skeptical of the artificial sweeteners and knew that drinking a lot of soda really wasn’t good. It was a huge decision, but I think we are both better off as a result!

Instead, we drink a lot of water.  I also started brewing my own iced tea to mix it up a bit and keep things interesting!  I typically drink my iced tea unsweetened with a lemon wedge, but once in a while I will jazz it up a bit more with 100% fruit juices and natural sweeteners.

I still had a few bottles of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice in my fridge (thanks to the great people at POM Wonderful who sent me some samples), so I decided to make a refreshing iced tea.  With some fresh lime juice, and a splash of citrus rum, it was an antioxidant packed refreshing treat one evening while preparing dinner.  Of course, the rum is optional.

Pomegranate Lime Tea

(Makes one glass. Measurements are approximate – just eyeball it!)

  • 1/2 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice (1/2 bottle)
  • 1/2 cup tea, chilled
  • 1/2 lime + additional wedges, if desired
  • Agave syrup, to taste
  • Citrus rum, just a splash (optional)
  • Ice cubes

Combine the pomegranate juice and tea in a large glass or tumbler.  Squeeze the juice from the lime half into the drink.  Add a teaspoon or so of agave syrup, adjusting to your taste.  Add a splash of citrus rum (optional).  Add ice cubes and garnish with a lime wedge.  Enjoy!

  1. We haven’t had any diet sodas in years, oh once in awhile a rootbeer for some reason sounds thrilling. Love iced tea your way and also with a splash of fresh lemonade.

  2. I’ll have to try this. I used some of my pomegranate juice mixed with tonic water for a mocktail of sorts. Your photo is lovely.

  3. I haven’t had regular soda in years! I had diet soda about two years ago and It was not the same. I love drinking water and refreshing teas like your pomegranate lime tea!

  4. I love the look of this — and not just because it sounds like a delicious idea, but because it reminds me of warmer months!

    Congrats on giving up soda. Good choice!

  5. I gave up my Diet Coke as a New Year’s resolution and it’s been super tough. This tea looks fabulous and just what I need to treat myself for kicking the diet soda!
