Pomegranate Molasses Margarita {Non-Alcoholic}

A delicious sweet and tangy non-alcoholic margarita, heavy with pomegranate flavors…




I am suffering from a “don’t feel like doing anything” state. I am struggling with a lot of things, but I don’t want to put it up here and spoil everyone’s mood at the same time. 😀 Thankfully, the climate is getting marginally better, though the mood is still for something cold whenever we can. I am eagerly waiting to go for long drives into the inside places, but at times, I feel like I am the only one who is jobless. Hehe… But still, just looking forward to having some nice and calm days ahead…


I am a stickler for cookbooks and food magazines. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you already know that. That reminds me that I need to slowly bring back the cookbook review, considering I have so many of my cookbooks still to go through. This recipe caught my attention when I picked up the August edition of the Spinneys food magazine. I love going through them mainly because the pictures are very tempting. However, the food is more western and not much to the taste of my family, so I don’t cook much from them. But I really wish I would… Hehe… So coming back to the recipe, my girls love pomegranate and anything to do with it, so I presumed they would love this recipe. The drink uses pomegranate juice, molasses and pomegranates for garnishing. It is on the sweet and sour side, tastes similar to the Tamr Hindi with Aam Panna feels. 😀 I used soda, though the recipe asked for sweetened sparkling water, so I am mentioning it in the remarks, in case you want it sweeter. It is a nice starter drink to serve if you have guests, or just to enjoy slowly sipping on hot, sultry days…

The original recipe used sweetened sweltzer and used almost a liter. You can use more soda or sweltzer depending upon how light you would need it. 
If you find it less sweet, add sugar syrup as needed.
If you are wondering what the glass is rimmed with, it is a mix of equal quantities of sumac and rock salt. Rub the lime on the rim of the glass and dip it into the mixture.
