Place the ice in a punch
bowl. Add the simple syrup, pomegranate juice, and cranberry
juice. Stir well. Slowly pour in the sparkling water. Garnish
slices, mint sprigs and pomegranate seeds, if using, and serve.
Serving Suggestion: As an alternative to serving from a punch bowl, make the bellini
mixture in a 6 to 8 cup capacity pitcher. Divide the pomegranate
seeds between 12 champagne
flutes. Add 1 slice of lime and 1 sprig of mint
to each glass. Pour the bellini mixture into the prepared glasses and serve.
