Make-your-own IZZE, Pomegranate Spritzer

I'm in love with the new IZZE drinks, sparkling juice beverages (similar to Orangina). I am kicking my diet-pop habit, and I figured I should find something else to drink that maybe doesn't have cancer-causing properties! These drinks are really good - they come in flavors like apple, pomegranate, blueberry, grapefruit, clementine, peach, and blackberry. They also have no preservatives or any artificial ingredients, and no sugar added! All natural!

I was at Target the other day and was going to buy some, and when I went to grab a 12-pack, I glanced down at the price. $8.70? For a 12-pack? The cans are only half the size of a Coke can? How can that be, when it's just fruit juice and sparkling water? Then it occurred to me. I could buy fruit juice and sparkling water!

So that's what I did. I got a $.99 bottle of club soda, along with a bottle of POM juice (I tried blueberry-pomegranate). I also bought a 4-pack of clementine IZZEs, on sale for $2.66, for special occasions. I got home, eager, to try my new concoction, and this is how it turned out: Yum!

Pomegranate Spritzer:
POM juice
Club Soda

Fill glass with about 1/3 cup of POM juice. Add ice and fill with club soda. Garnish with lemon or lime slice, if desired.

Wow! That looks delicious! I've never had an Izze, but they do look yummy! Great idea! Keep the recipes coming! :)

That is an excellent idea. I too love Izzes, but am deterred by the price. I have often thought it would be so easy to just make it myself, but never had. Now I just might.

YUMMO! I LOVE Izze drinks so this is a great idea!

Thanks for dinner tonight! It was great hanging out with you and Kyle. It had been too long! Let's plan another get together soon!

Looks yummy! Do I need the fancy glass too?!

Only Drew is going to Ben's wedding, we couldn't afford 4, $500 tickets. I am bummed to miss it.

I love this!!! I also just bought Trader Joe's Pomegranate Spritzers and they were great - and probably cheaper than Izzie's. Just an idea.
