Nam manglak can be as simple as water, crushed ice, basil seed, and some sweetener. This is ever so slightly more gussied up: flavored with rose, lime, and honey, made effervescent by sparkling water. It's an unbeatably refreshing combination for the hot sticky days to come.
This version of manglak isn't too sweet, but if you want to replicate the intense sweetness of many bottled basil seed drinks, add some simple syrup (infused with ginger if you're feeling ambitious) to the honey. More honey on its own would be overpowering.

Ok ladies and gentleman. It’s now day eight of The Twelve Boozy Days of Christmas. To the table today I brought Pomegranate & Lime White Wine Spritzer.
The other thing I really like about this drink is that it’s pretty. That’s a good reason to want to drink it….
Pomegrantate & Lime White Wine Spritzer
Prep Time: 5 minutes
This pomegranate lime white wine spritzer is the perfect all year round drink. It’s made with white wine, seltzer, lime and lots of pomegranate seeds.
It’s not just pretty. This pink drink is bright with the flavor of tart cherries and lemon with a peachy edge from the schnapps and an herbal edge from the rosemary. Serve this drink to your guests as they arrive and watch as the party gets rolling.
It’s that easy: It’s simple to remove the seeds from a pomegranate. Just cut it around its equator, holding one half over a bowl, cut side down, wrap it with the handle of a wooden spoon. The seeds should pop out nicely. Discard the shell and use the seeds as directed.
