Make a creamy, bubbly, delicious Italian soda with pomegranate juice and maybe even spiked with vodka for a party cocktail.

First, it’s fall and we’re totally embracing the fruits of the season. But – let’s not get crazy and juice fresh pomegranates (we don’t have time for that nor are we interested in that mess). We can totally use store-bought (100%) pomegranate juice with no judgement.

This recipe makes a uber-licious pomegranate syrup that not only works great in these pomegranate Italian sodas, but also could be drizzled over ice cream, poured over pancakes, or shaken into a salad dressing. It’s magical and you should use its super powers liberally.

But for these sodas we just need to start with a glass filled with crushed ice, a little pomegranate soda, a heavy pour of bubbly club soda and then top with a tablespoon or two of half and half.

All of this makes the creamiest, bubbliest, most refreshing yet still classy concoction and yes, you’re thinking the same thing I am… how can we booze this up? Well, just add about 2 ounces of vodka (even a vanilla vodka would be delish) and now we have the perfect adult cocktail for all these holiday parties where we must act like ladies and gentlemen.
