Cranberry Pomegranate Cider

_MG_2236

This recipe was very impromptu.  When Jasmine saw leftover cranberries in the kitchen, all of a sudden she placed them in a pot with filtered water, pomegranate, coconut sugar, orange juice, and cinnamon sticks.  She then simmered it while we were cooking away in the kitchen, strained it, adjusted its flavor, and voila!  She called it cider.  This cider is quite nice–very mild and lovely, and not too sweet.  It actually tastes like a very pleasant and delicious tea to me.  Thanks to Jasmine‘s resourcefulness, we enjoyed a festive beverage at our Thanksgiving feast as well as an intoxicating holiday aroma.

It can be served cold or warm, and if you wish to spike it up or make it bubbly, add some kombucha or champagne to your glass.  We served the cider in my new holiday wine glasses, which adorned the table quite nicely. 

Jasmine, and I created a bountiful Thanksgiving feast for our readers to enjoy, which consists of 13 deliciously tantalizing recipes! We’re referring to this collection of recipes as our Sweet Eclectic Thanksgiving celebration! We hope you include this recipe, as well as our other recipes, on your holiday tables!
