One week until Halloween! Do you have your costume picked out? Are you and your spouse dressing up together or did you each pick your own fun outfit to celebrate the day? This year, my husband and I don’t have any costumes. No Halloween parties to attend and I’m not sure if we will be getting any trick-or-treaters. Of course, that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the holiday! We will be watching a scary movie, munching on yummy candy and drinking these Pomegranate S’Cream Sodas – a bloody good treat!
When asked about a favorite fall drink, most people will think of the trendy Pumpkin Spice Latte or a crisp apple cider. To be honest, I’m not a fan of either beverage. I know some of you are thinking… but, but PSL is my life. I live for the day it comes out. If this is the case, might I suggest one of these shirts? I do enjoy when I see that it is being offered again because that means that it is the start of the fall season, but I don’t really like the drink. Plus, neither drink seems right for Halloween.
Although pumpkins and apples are the traditional fall fruits, fall also brings the pomegranate. Bonus? Pomegranate is the perfect shade of red to simulate blood for a scary drink. That is why I decided to use pomegranate as the flavor for my Halloween mocktail.
Pomegranate Italian cream sodas
If you’ve never had an Italian cream soda before, you are in for a treat. All you need is 3 ingredients: a flavored syrup, half & half, and club soda! Obviously, I chose a pomegranate syrup for this recipe. I also decided to use the new Land O’Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half. Why? Because it is an indulgent half & half made with real milk and cream. I tried it in my morning coffee and it was extra rich, creamy and delicious so I knew it would be great for a cream soda. You should definitely check it out! I got mine in the dairy section of Walmart.
Making this drink is super simple. Pour 1 part pomegranate syrup over ice; save a little bit to pour on top if you want some bloody streaks. Add 2 parts club soda and then 2 parts half & half. The half & half will make some fun swirls in the drink, but if you want a bit more of a bloody look, insert a straw or spoon until it is in the syrup and then drag it up the side of the glass. I topped ours with whip cream and a few pomegranate seeds and then poured the remaining pomegranate syrup on top. I would serve it with a straw or spoon in the glass since you will need to stir the cream soda before drinking it.
A fun fall drink
Are you having friends over for an adult Halloween party? Or maybe you are hosting Thanksgiving this year? Pomegranate Cream Soda is perfect for both holidays and for watching The Walking Dead with friends! Why should the designated drivers miss out on the fun? Stock up on some flavored syrup, club soda, and half & half for an easy, delicious and extra indulgent treat.
What do you think? Will pomegranate cream soda be your new fall drink or is PSL your one true love?
A refreshing, fizzy fall mocktail perfect for celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving or a day of raking leaves!
