POM Vanilla Punch

Unfortunately I don't have great pictures of this punch, but it was party time.  You can understand, right?  I made two batches of this and it was gone before the guests, so you don't have to take my word for it that this was delicious!!  Perfect for kids and adults alike, I served it with some bubbly on the side for those who wished to imbibe.



Pomegranate Vanilla Punch
adapted from How Sweet It Is
yield ~ 10-15 glasses

1 lg orange, sliced
1 lg apple, sliced
1 lg pear, sliced
airls of 1 large pomegranate
2 cinnamon stick
seeds and pod of 1 vanilla bean (optional)
1T vanilla extract
48oz pomegranate juice (not from concentrate, I used POM Wonderful)
1L vanilla seltzer
prosecco, optional

In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients except prosecco.  Cover and refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

Serve with prosecco on this side!




This one's a keeper folks!

This sounds delicious - and good be great for a bridal or baby shower given that you could take or keep the bubbly!

If there's one thing I ALWAYS have on hand, it's POM! (Mostly for impromptu cranberry sauce cravings :P). But this punch does sound fabulous!

Definitely sounds like my kind of punch! Now I just need an excuse to make it...

This was FANTASTIC!!!! Since it was made at my house I had the leftover flavored fruit which I eagerly devoured, enjoying every bite! This will definitely be my go-to punch for future parties! Thanks again Shannon :)

I love punch. It seems like such a throwback drink. (I seem to remember hearing on the food network they were coming back in style :-) ) I am especially smitten with the idea of including vanilla bean. It's so fragrant and floral it makes so many things seem more special.

Delicious! I mixed Pom juice with vanilla vokda a couple weeks ago and was initially a bit skeptical, but when I tried it, I loved it!
