Pomegranate drink

October 17, 2014  • 

 

This drink is inspired by a punch I had at a beach wedding in Lebanon; one of these lavish weddings that take place in the country, making you feel like you are in a world of fairy tales. 

 To reproduce this drink, I am going to insist that fresh pomegranates be used.


INGREDIENTS: 4 servings

4 large sweet pomegranates

1 ½ tsp rose water

Syrup made of 1 cup of sugar and ½ cup of water with a teaspoon of lemon juice.

½ cup pine nuts (previously soaked in 1 cup of water for one hour)

  1. Make the sugar syrup; place the sugar and water in a saucepan; bring to a boil; simmer for 5 minutes then add the lemon juice. Cool the syrup.
  2. Peel the pomegranates and place in the bowl of a food processor; run the machine for a few seconds; transfer the contents of the bowl to a large sieve and press to extract as much juice as possible. Transfer the juice to a bowl.
  3. Add ½ cup of syrup and the rose water. Taste and add more if needed. Stir. Transfer to serving glasses and drop 2 tablespoons of pine nuts in each glass; keep in the fridge until serving.
