This slightly sweet and herbal detox water is an easy way to up your daily water intake. If you start with a whole pomegranate you'll have extra seeds to use for another batch!
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 pomegranate or ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
  • ¼ cup fresh tarragon
  • 1 quart water
  1. If using a whole pomegranate there is a little trick to removing the seeds that will make the experience much more pleasant.
  2. Roll the fruit on a cutting board with the back of your hand to loosen the seeds slightly.
  3. Score the top with an x and tear the pomegranate open with your hands.
  4. Submerge the pomegranate into a large bowl of water and push the edges down and away to loosen the fruit. Using a large wooden spoon, tap the skin with a wooden spoon to release the rest of the fruit. Remove any of the pith that floats to the top, and drain the water.
  5. Measure out ¼ cup of the seeds and save the rest for another use.
  6. Place the pomegranate seeds into a small bowl and use the back of a wooden spoon or muddler to lightly smash the seeds and release the juice. Alternatively, if you have a mortar and pestle you can use that to smash the seeds. Add the seeds and tarragon to a large pitcher and fill with the water. Let sit for at least 30 minutes or overnight before drinking.
