Pomegranate Cranberry Cocktail and How to Deseed a Pomegranate in 60 seconds

Pomegranate Cranberry Cocktail-These red and green cocktails are festive and perfect for a holiday party.

I love the color of these cocktails. The extra large pomegranates are finally in season. I stocked up on them while shopping at Costco, which also gave me a chance to try out a new method of deseeding pomegranates which has been all over the internet. I’ve made my own video showing the method, which you can find at the end of this post.

It really works and I was able to completely de-seed my huge pomegranate in less than 60 seconds. The ruby red fruit is so pretty, inspiring me to make these holiday cocktails.

      I saw videos a lot this year but didn’t believe it until I tried it myself. It really works and it’s so fast.

    Looks like a nice refreshing cocktail! I think the seeds in the drink is a cute idea. Plus you can say you’re getting nutrients while having a drink :)
