1-1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus lemon wheels for garnish
1/2 cup sugar
Alternatively you can use 1 cup prepared lemonade
Seltzer water, for mixing
Pour the pomegranate juice into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight. Put the lemon juice and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer; cook, stirring, until sugar is completely dissolved. Cool to room temperature.
To serve, fill a tall glass with 3 to 4 pomegranate ice cubes. Pour about 1/4 cup of the lemon syrup over the ice and top off with seltzer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Stir gently; garnish each glass with a lemon wheel and serve.

*** If you would like to make this without the effort of the ice cube process. Mix ½ cup pomegranate juice with ¼ cup lemonade and add about ¼ – ½ cup seltzer per glass.
