A pomegranate is a sacred fruit with numerous benefits! It is loaded in anti-oxidants It is rich in Vitamin A, C, E and K It is rich in Minerals like Calcium, Phosphorous, Potassium, Iron and Folic acid. It is good for heart It helps in maintaining the blood sugar level It helps in maintaining the blood Pressure It is good for hair and skin............. This is the reason that I often use it to make a refreshing Mocktails when the weather starts getting warm. This drink is perfect for summers and it is somewhat like a Mojito because it has all the elements of the cocktail, except for the alcohol. Give this amazing beverage a go friends, and enjoy! Happy Summer!
