How to mix

Recipe by Charlie Clapp

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a pan, except the pomegranate seeds and gin. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a gentle boil then take off the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Add the pomegranate seeds and gin and decant into a large glass container or several glass bottles. Leave to macerate for 2 weeks, or as long as possible.
  3. Strain and pour into your chosen bottles (leave unstrained if you think it looks more interesting). It will keep in a cool, dark place for a few months.
