I do love gin, it is one of my favourite things to drink on a hot summers day and this flavour combination is just divine.
For an alcohol-free version, replace the gin with 1 cup (250ml) lemonade, sparkling water or pomegranate juice.
This is something I will definitely be serving guests this summer and it is the perfect drink to serve around Christmas, so festive, so nice.
4 limes, cut into wedges
⅓ cup (75g) caster sugar
4 mint sprigs
½ cup (120g) fresh or frozen pomegranate seeds
240ml chilled gin
1 lime, extra, thinly sliced
1 litre berry-flavoured sparkling mineral water
Crushed ice, to serve
Place lime wedges, sugar, mint and half the pomegranate seeds in a medium bowl. Use the end of a rolling pin to crush until lime and pomegranate seeds release their juice. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Transfer to a large jug.
Add gin and remaining pomegranate seeds to the lime mixture in the jug and stir to combine.
Divide the pomegranate mixture among serving glasses or pour into a large jug. Add the lime slices. Top with mineral water and ice.
