My award winning Pomegranate Lemonade Cupcakes recipe are the perfect spring cupcake!!
One of my favorite summertime drinks is a pomegranate lemonade that I make using the juice that I stored from my trees over the winter. I juice all the fruit and store the juice in the freezer in small baggies. I love pomegranates, but I hate picking out the seeds to eat and juicing can be a mess.
A couple weeks ago POM Wonderful contacted me and asked me to give their 100% Pomegranate Juice Concentrate a try. I immediately said yes! I will be making my pomegranate lemonade soon, but for now…I thought y’all would like this cupcake recipe I came up with. It is perfect for Valentine’s Day!
The 100% Pomegranate Juice Concentrate is only available online, but let me tell you….YOU NEED THIS! If you like pomegranates then you will want to give it a try. I made a Shirley Temple for my daughter today and she was in heaven. Remember that pomegranate vinaigrette I was going to try to make….it’s now on my short list of things to try. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this juice. It was so easy to use and a little goes a long way. But if you just want some straight up pomegranate juice, there are directions on how to dilute the concentrate. AWESOME! If you head over to POM Wonderful’s website, there is currently a $1 off coupon for a 16oz bottle of Pomegranate Juice at the grocery store.
I entered this recipe into the POM Wonderful cupcake recipe contest in 2011 and won!

Words cannot describe happy, honored, and humbled I am. So many people rallied around my cupcake that I won!
