Method

  1. Zest and juice the clementine, then remove the seeds from the pomegranates.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a pan, except the pomegranate seeds and gin.
  3. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a gentle boil then take off the heat and leave to cool.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
