Ingredients

  • 5 pomegranates
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice, plus strips of orange zest for garnish

Directions

  1. Cut pomegranates in half. Extract juice from seeds with a citrus juicer or reamer. Strain into a medium saucepan. (You should have about 2 1/2 cups juice.)

  2. Add cider, 2 cups water, the cinnamon stick, and ginger. Cook over high heat until simmering, 5 to 6 minutes. Reduce heat; gently simmer 15 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the surface.

  3. Remove from heat. Discard cinnamon and ginger. Stir in orange juice. Serve warm, garnished with orange zest.
