This cocktail is truly luscious. The flavours are sweet and floral while still retaining significant tartness from the fresh pomegranate juice.
It was served alongside a few amuse bouches at a dinner party back in June.
I highly recommend this to start or finish any Middle Eastern themed evening, or when you're home alone and need to pamper yourself with a little luxury.
