Pomegranate Italian Ice

While the rest of the country is experiencing the beginnings of fall and drop in temperatures, Miami is experiencing the continuance of summer. It's hot, humid, rainy, and I'm starting to get excited when I see that our temperatures will be dipping into the mid-80s. It's still ridiculously hot but at least the temperatures aren't flirting with record temperatures. This pomegranate treat is perfect for the hot days we've been having here and a fun alternative to dairy-based frozen treats.
Pomegranate Italian Ice
Adapted from Sherry Yard's Desserts By the Yard

1 1/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup pomegranate juice (I used POM Wonderful)
3 6-oz ramekins

Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Stir in pomegranate juice and pour into ramekins. Freeze until solid.

Slush up, serve and enjoy!

This reminds me of an ice skating rink.
