Pomegranate Hot Toddy Mocktail

Pomegranate Hot Toddy Mocktail


Alcohol is not promoted in an Ayurvedic lifestyle or diet and wine is considered astringent and warming and can easily exacerbate symptoms of indigestion and pitta qualities. But during the holidays, there is something timeless about a warm hot toddy. More and more people have swapped alcohol for more beneficial beverages. Instead of a base of alcohol, pomegranate juice makes a perfect nutritive swap that has a similar flavor and is aligned with the seasonal energies of Winter. Pomegranates are loaded with Vitamin C, antioxidants, and additionally help to reduce inflammation and boost immunity. The addition of holiday warming spices also help to warm and promote digestion during the holiday season.

Makes 4-5 glasses


4 cups pomegranate juice
1 orange
¼ cup cranberries or pomegranate seeds
1 thumb fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 cinnamon sticks
3 star anise
4 cloves


Slice the orange and reserve a couple pieces, specifically the peel for garnish.

Add all ingredients to a large stock pot and heat on medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, until mixture begins to boil.

Reduce heat to low and continue to cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve warm with orange peel garnish.
