Orange-Pomegranate Roy Rogers

Traditional kiddy cocktails are made with grenadine syrup, which is loaded with sugar and artificial red dyes, which may be linked to attention deficit disorders and hyperactivity in children. This updated crowd-pleasing mocktail gets it color from antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice, and its sweetness from fruit, plus just a touch of honey. And all for under 100 calories per glass.
