Pomegranate and lime juice

I can't seem to stop complaining about the weather here. Its so hot here again and many kids are falling sick with this crazy heat. TH is down with viral fever and there's the simple khichdi on the menu for every meal.
TH has been advised rest, something he does only on the doctor's prescription, and to drink a lot of fluids. I am very lazy when it comes to making juices for some reason, but being the good wife that I am, I decided to make fresh juice everyday for him.

pomegranate and lime juice

I had had this at a friend's place. It was a lovely combination using pomegranate and lemon and such a pretty colour too !
Its really refreshing in the heat here, my son loved it and TH found it very replenishing.

There's no real recipe here. I used what I had at home, you could use more or less of the lemons and pomegranates

What you need

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
4 lemons
2 tbsps powdered sugar
1/2 tsp black salt
ice cubes (optional)

What you do with it -

Squeeze the lemons and remove the seeds
Mix the powdered sugar into the lemon juice
Remove the seeds of the pomegranate and use a mixer/ blender to get a thick pulp
Strain using a muslin cloth or a sieve
Add this to the lemon juice
Mix in with the black salt
Add approx 3 glasses of water and stir well
Serve as is or with ice cubes
You could even spike it with some vodka !
