  • 7.5 fluid oz. Minute Maid Lemon Juice (or 7 fresh squeezed lemons)
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 2 fresh lemons
  • 1 Tablepoon pomegranate pieces
  • Ice
  • Rimming salt (optional)


Minute Maid Lemon Juice, fresh lemons and pomegranate fruit on a countertop waiting to be made into this easy pomegranate lemonade drink recipe.

  1. Add four cups hot water and 1/2 cup pure cane sugar (the recipe on the box says to use 3/4 cup, but that’s too sweet for my taste) to the pitcher.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Add the entire bottle of lemon juice – or the juice of seven fresh squeezed lemons.
  4. Stir to make sure the sugar water and lemon juice are well mixed.
  5. Slice the fresh lemons in half.
  6. Then slice those half in half again.
  7. Then slice each half into fourths. Now you should have sixteen lemon pieces.
  8. If you are using rimming salt, slice one lemon in fourths and run a piece of lemon it around the top of the glass making sure to squeeze it ever-so-slightly so the lemon juice is released.
  9. Pour some rimming salt onto a small saucer, turn the glass upside down and gently rub the rim of the glass in the salt.
  10. As long as there is enough lemon juice on the rim of the glass, the salt will stick. Sometimes it is necessary to add a bit more lemon juice and repeat the process.
  11. Fill the glasses halfway up with ice.
  12. Add three of the small lemon slices and a tablespoon of pomegranate* to the glass.
  13. Fill the glass with ice and top it off with lemonade.
  14. Add a lemon slice to the top of the glass and a straw.
  15. Serve immediately.


*Look for the containers of pomegranate pieces instead of buying the whole fruit.
