“This make ahead drink is great for parties, and can be served with or without alcohol. The pomegranate and sage combine for a surprisingly light and delicious drink, and guests who have tried it always ask for more! I like to make this the night before, but the drink will actually be good for up to a week in the frig. This has become a new holiday favorite in our house. Servings per recipe will be determined by the size of drink served. I like to serve these drinks in wine glasses or small tumblers.”
