In a medium saucepan, bring the pomegranate juice and simple syrup to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat so that the mixture simmers, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes. It shouldn’t reduce too much or get syrupy; it should be just concentrated enough to give a little texture to the drink. Cool; store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days

Use 100% pure pomegranate juice with no added sugars. To make a simple syrup, heat equal parts sugar and water over medium heat until the sugar dissolves; cool.
