  1. This sounds yummy, Velva. Last night I made a pomegranate juice/sugar & water syrup/ lime juice/orange liqueur drink that I found on someone's blog (I think Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness) and it was tasty. Bet this version here would be really tasty, as well πŸ™‚

  2. And you can re-use the rosemary in a dish as \”pomegranate infused rosemary\”, ha ha. Nice drink. I have some pom juice in the fridge so this might work for us.
