November is National Pomegranate Month, so we’re putting this funtastic fruit into a SweetShine cocktail.

What the heck do you do with this thing, though? Let’s explore …


You’ll need a blender, mesh strainer, and container for the juice.

Start by slicing the pomegranate in half, vertically.

Cut into quarters and use your fingers or a spoon to carefully remove the arils. Be sure to get every last one!

Pour arils into a blender, setting a few aside for garnish, and pulse a few times to release juice. Strain into container, pressing arils with a spoon to get all the juice.
