Mango Pomegranate Spiced Sparkler

This drink deserves to be on your Diwali party menu. Mildly spiced, with traditional Indian flavours and bejeweled colours, it’s an absolute show stopper. Mocktails also help those in a party who don’t consume alcohol not feel left out or sipping plainly on a pepsi or a coca cola. I have used club soda to give it a party kick, but plain cold water would work well too. Make sure you drizzle in the pomegranate juice at the very end for cloudy red hit in the drink.
