Cocktails are my thing. Call me harsh, but I often find myself judging a bar by their cocktail offering alone. I love the exotic names, combinations of ingredients I would never have thought of and the feeling of sheer sophistication whilst drinking one. A level of sophistication that I’m sure decreases with each subsequent drink.
My husband, many years ago, used to work as a bartender in a Brindley Place restaurant, and so likes to think of himself of a bit of an expert. I take full advantage of this, (obviously, who wouldn’t?!) and we will often experiment with new drinks recipes at home.
Last night I brought home some pomegranate supplies to see what he could come up with.
I remembered that I had a bottle of Melis Pomegranate Sauce. An impulsive purchase made at some point last summer, which up until now, had sat unused at the back of the cupboard. It’s a really thick, sweet, intense pomegranate syrup. A perfect substitute for normal sugar syrup.
So with the help of a lime and a bottle of gin, the Pomegranate Martini was born!
- 50ml Gin
- 25ml POM juice
- 10ml Pomegranate Syrup try Melis or Monin for supplies, or just use plain sugar syrup
- squeeze of lime
Shake together with some ice in a cocktail shaker, strain into a cocktail glass, and drink!
