Fourth of July Julep

Welcome to Foodie Friday via Applejack Lane.  I want to share a special summer drink I dubbed a Fourth of July Julep that I served this week at my ladies' luncheon.  It is non-alcoholic so it can be used with all ages.

Fourth of July Julep
1 lemon
1 lime
1 orange
1 64 oz. bottle pomegranate juice
1 2 liter bottle ginger ale, regular or diet
Cut the lime and lemon into slices; then halve each slice.  Cut the orange into slices; then quarter each slice.  Put fruit pieces into a pitcher.  
Pour about half of the pomegranate juice into the pitcher.  Chill and allow to juice to marinate the fruit for several hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, pour about half of the ginger ale into the pitcher and stir.
Serve in glasses and add a couple of slices of fruit to each serving.  Add ice.
