I love this cocktail because it’s not that sweet and is so easy to make. It’s literally a case of banging all the ingredients into a glass and giving them a good muddle and stir.

I know we are heading towards winter in Cape Town, but who doesn’t mind a refreshing drink at any time of the year. Pomegranates are in season at the moment (March to May), so its a good time to consider ways to turn this delicious fruit into tasty things. I’m rather a fan it has to be said, and these are a few of my favourite recipes with pomegranates:
