Spiced Pomegranate Sipper

There is nothing like a hot beverage in cool weather to give you that warm and fuzzy feeling.  Many new recipes are popping up for them I would like to try.  This one sounds especially good to me.  How could you go wrong with pomegranate and pineapple juice?!  BONUS:  the cinnamon and cloves simmering on your stove will make your house smell divine, naturally.  Simmer right before your guests arrive to fragrance your home.

Spiced Pomegranate Sipper


Prep: 10 min., Cook: 18 min.

Makes about 8 cups


  • 1  (2 1/2-inch-long) cinnamon stick
  • 5  whole cloves
  • 5  thin fresh ginger slices
  • 2  (16-oz.) bottles refrigerated 100% pomegranate juice
  • 4  cups  white grape juice
  • 1/2  cup  pineapple juice
  • Garnishes: pineapple chunks, orange rind curls


1. Cook cinnamon stick, cloves, and ginger in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until cinnamon is fragrant.

2. Gradually stir in juices. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a heat-proof pitcher; discard solids. Serve warm. Garnish, if desired.
