Flora's Pomegranate and Gin Fizz
18 Dec 2023
As the winter chill settles in, we turn to Flora to infuse warmth and cheer into our kitchens, this time with a delightful concoction that marries the vibrant allure of pomegranates with the spirited kick of gin. In her Pomegranate and Gin Fizz, Flora effortlessly captures the essence of the season, harmoniously blending yuletide flavours, to create a cocktail that's as enchanting as the winter festivities themselves. Cheers to the season of merriment and indulgence!
50g caster sugar
2 sprigs of rosemary
25g orange juice
prosecco, or sparkling water to top up
De-seed the pomegranate and set 1/4 aside for garnish. Bash the rest of the seeds with the bottom of a rolling pin in a bowl in order to release the juice. Strain and measure out 100g into a jug. Depending on how juicy your pomegranate is you may require more seeds.
In a small pan bring the sugar, water and rosemary to a simmer. Once the sugar has fully dissolved remove from the heat and set aside to cool down for 10 minutes.
Strain the sugar syrup and add to the pomegranate juice alongside the gin. Stir well then add the orange juice and mix again.
Divide into four glasses with a little ice then top up with prosecco (or sparkling water if you prefer). Serve with the remaining pomegranate seeds.
