Weekend Cocktails - Watermelon Pomegranate Rum Cooler

I have talked before about the benefits of pomegranate juice and specifically the quality of POM Wonderful brand of pomegranate since being introduced to it last year. Back in the fall, I made several recipes using POM, so I was delighted when the POM Wonderful folks offered to send me another case to try some summer recipes. Loaded with powerful antioxidants and frankly pretty great just straight up, if you haven't gotten around to trying POM Wonderful, you should!

I had some chunks of watermelon in the fridge that needed to be used, so I thought that the combination of watermelon with POM juice for a nice weekend cocktail sounded pretty refreshing and it certainly was! You can of course make this a virgin drink by eliminating the rum and it's still a great punch drink.

Remember to drink responsibly - enjoy!!
