This nonalcoholic pink drink is a great treat for children during festive occasions.


  • 2 tablespoons colored sanding sugar

  • 1 lime

  • 6 teaspoons pomegranate syrup or grenadine

  • 1 ½ cups pink-grapefruit juice


  1. Place sanding sugar in a shallow dish or plate. Slice six thin rounds from the middle of lime; set aside. Rub lime wedge around rims of six glasses; dip each rim in sugar to coat. Pour 1 teaspoon pomegranate syrup into bottom of each glass.

  2. Place grapefruit juice and 2 cups ice cubes in a blender. Process on high speed until ice is crushed. Pour frozen mixture into glasses, and stir to combine with syrup. Garnish with reserved lime rounds, and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Sanding sugar is a large-grain decorative sugar; granulated sugar may be substituted.
