Pomegranate shots

This cocktail is great served at the end of a meal. The first time I had it was in a bar called MG Garage in Sydney, where they brought out frozen glasses, frozen gin and a tray full of pomegranates at the end of our meal. Since then I've used it as a good trick after a meal to clean the palate and relaunch the conversation. Buy a good-quality bottle of gin – you normally get what you pay for. Pop it in the freezer for an hour, along with a shot glass for each of your guests.

Ingredients

  • pomegranates
  • 1 bottle gin
 

Method

Peel some pomegranates and remove the beautiful deep purple-red capsules from inside. At the end of the meal, simply fill your shot glass with pomegranate seeds, pour in your iced gin and shoot the cocktail back. Don't swallow until you've crunched the pomegranate seeds and got a real burst of fragrance and flavour in your mouth. Then swallow the lot and continue the conversation... or have another one.
