Raise a Glass to This Family Friendly Mocktail

Cheers to 2014! Cheers to 2014! I have a large pomegranate tree in my backyard, and those beautiful, jewel-filled fruits become ripe just as the holiday season is really getting under way. I am always looking for ways to use those beauties this time of year, and I think this punch might be one of my favorites. Nothing says "party" like a sparkling beverage. This super-simple punch is the perfect way for everyone to toast to the new year.
