Refreshing Pomegranate Ice Tea with an Orangey Twist

Sonia Mangla brews up a refreshing batch of pomegranate ice tea for those warm and humid summer days.
By Sonia Mangla

What can beat Pomegranate, an an all time favorite of mine? I’ve been playing with the idea of making an ice cream or a sorbet, for some weird reason haven’t been able to find much of my favorite fruit in the markets. Even went to an extent of Buying a bottle of POM, hmm… inference = can’t beat the freshness. So here we are trying my hands on making a strange concoction which delivered well. Many people don’t get Ice Tea, never mind these blokes, I love ice tea. Nothing is better than a chilled can of Arnold palmer (Half Lemonade / half Ice Tea) on a warm & humid summer day.

This drink is packed with anti-oxidants which improve health & detox your system. A great way to enhance your well being. Cheers!
