Put the sugar, lemon juice and pomegranate juice in a heavy pot, I used a large enameled cast iron stew pot. Set the heat to medium and stir until the sugar dissolves. Turn the heat down to somewhere between medium and medium low and continue heating the mixture until it has reduced to a thick syrup. This will take anywhere from 70 to 120 minutes, depending on the size of your pot and the level of heat. The liquid should be just simmering if you want to make the quickest work of it.
When the liquid is thick and syrupy, and has reduced to about a cup or a cup and a half, take it off the heat. Let it cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then transfer to a bottle or jar. Cool it completely before putting on a lid and then refrigerate.
Note: if you cook the juice down too far it will not remain fluid as it cools.
