Pomegranate seeds are a popular fruit thanks to their natural sweet taste and antioxidant properties and these pomegranate cocktails by Salt & Wind transform the superfood fruit into a delicious tropical daiquiri that can be made right at home.

While daiquiris are usually made with berries or sweeter fruits, this pomegranate version offers a lighter, healthier and citrusy take on the traditional recipe. The drink includes white rum, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur and lime juice blended with ice. Simple syrup is also added to subdue the bitter taste of the fruit and give sweetness. Fresh pomegranate seeds are also added muddled prior to give the drink an unconventional fruity taste and a bright pink coloring.

Consumers are searching to add more healthy ingredients to their libations that mirror their everyday food and lifestyle choices.
