I would like to substitute, homemade cranberry juice for the pomegranate cranberry juice in this recipe.

I have some lovely homemade cranberry juice left over from Christmas brunch. I wonder if we would miss the subtleties that the pomegranate lens to this recipe. Any thoughts?

This is a judgment call based on your taste buds and those of your guests.

I've had plenty of cranberry juice and pomegranate juice in my life and personally I doubt if using a pure one in this drink would result in failure.

After all, this is not a classic cocktail like a Singapore Sling where a pomegranate-based grenadine component is essential (or at least expected by traditionalists).

Depending on your guests, they might enjoy with your fresh cranberry juice but I don't know their tastes so what you think will please them.

Best of luck.
