Pome­gran­ate vodka

Essentials (South Africa) - - CRAFT -

(Makes 2 x 450ml)

Put the seeds of 1 large pome­gran­ate and 750ml vodka (should be 40% proof) into a ster­ilised Kil­ner jar. Dis­solve 200g cas­tor sugar in a pan with 200ml wa­ter; gen­tly bub­ble for 3 to 4 min. Cool slightly, add to the vodka mix and give it a good shake. Leave in a cool, dark place for at least 4 days. Strain off the pome­gran­ate seeds, re­turn the vodka to the jar and de­cant into ster­ilised bot­tles. Add fresh pome­gran­ate seeds a few days be­fore giv­ing as a gift. This has a real kick – great served over ice topped up with pome­gran­ate juice.
