Y’know what’s coming up really soon? Tu B’shvat! Yep, the Jewish holiday that’s all about the fruit! In the past years, I’ve shared some really delicious baked goods starring fruit.
This year, I figured I would switch it up by offering you a drink recipe. This one is perfect, because the main flavor is pomegranate, one of the shivas haminim, the seven fruits of the land of Israel – which are at the center of the Tu B’shvat celebration!
Some background on this Pomegranate Lemonade recipe. I dreamed it up ages ago, because I love creating cool and exciting drinks (and seriously, I don’t share enough of them here with you!). I shared it back in the summer, in my column in Ami magazine. I’ve been dreaming about it ever since, so I figured this would be a good time to give it a day in the spotlight.
And if you’re wondering why I’m sharing a cold drink recipe when there’s a forecast for NY’s first big snowstorm of the year, the answer is simple. I like cold drinks. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like…there’s really no time when you can’t enjoy my delicious pomegranate lemonade!
