To make a refreshing summer drink, put 2 tablespoons of pomegranate cordial in a tall glass. Add crushed ice and fresh mint leaves and top up with still or sparkling water.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 large pomegranates
180g granulated sugar
1 lemon, juiced

Method

  1. Line a colander with muslin and set it over a large bowl to catch the juice. Roll the pomegranates on your work surface to loosen the seeds. Cut the fruit in half crosswise and squeeze out all the pips and juice into the muslin. Gather the 4 corners of the muslin together and twist and squeeze to extract as much juice as you can. Bash with a rolling pin and twist and squeeze again.
  2. Put the pomegranate juice and sugar into a non-reactive pan and heat gently to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Raise the heat and bring to the boil. Skim away the froth, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, then remove from the heat and cool slightly. Pour into sterilised bottles and seal. When completely cold, store in the fridge. It will keep for up to 2 weeks.
