It seems we’ve had record breaking heat across the country this summer. I am quite thankful for my air conditioner and for my mostly indoor job. My husband and teenage boys spend most days outside in the heat and it is exhausting. Irrigating hay meadows, cutting, baling, hauling and stacking hay; all just a small part of summer life on a cattle ranch. I try find creative ways to reward their hard work and help them cool off. This Strawberry-Pom Limeade is a refreshing summer drink that just fits the bill. Sweet summer strawberries paired with tart limeade and kicked up with some pomegranate juice blended together for a cool, slushy consistency.

I’ve been on a strawberry-limeade kick since visiting The Sonic while traveling the south over summer break with my family. I’ve also been experimenting with pomegranate juice adding it to homemade popsicles and icy drinks.

The Pom Wonderful company touts pomegranate juice as an antioxidant superpower. It tastes so good and it’s good for you, that’s hard to beat. Believe it or not, I found the POM Wonderful site to be packed with interesting information from the health benefits to the process of extracting the juice from the fruit. Also about their 18,000 acres of pomegranate trees which must be gorgeous. I always wanted to own an orchard, but I digress.

This is the perfect summer drink for kids and adults alike and is ready in mere minutes. Give this a try next time you are looking for a tasty way to beat the heat!

    This sounds delish! I would love to add a splash of vodka for a summer party drink.

    One summer I checked fields and orchards for insect pests on a college internship. I did have the pleasure of walking some pomegranate orchards and they were amazing looking with the trees loaded with fruit. Thanks for the tasty drink recipe!
