What is the correct bracha and bracha acharona on pomegranate juice?

Question:

What is the correct bracha and bracha acharona on pomegranate juice?

Answer:

The bracha rishona is shehakol, and the bracha achrona is borei nefashos. The reason for this is that the liquid of any friut or vegetable is not considered to be the significant part of the fruit, and considered “sweat”, with the exception of grapes and olives.

 Since the bracha rishona is shehakol the bracha achrona is like any other liquid, even though it is from the 7 minim.
