How to Make: Pomegranate Mule with Homemade Infused Gin
Seasonal Cocktails for Your Next Festive Party 

What you need (for 10 small glasses):

  • 1 Pomegranate
  • 550ml gin
  • Fresh lime juice and extra for garnish (optional)
  • 550ml ginger beer
  • 2 cups of ice
  • A sterile glass jar with airtight lid

Tip! We only left our gin to infuse for 8 hours but you can leave it for up to 2 weeks. Leave it longer for a stronger flavour in your pomegranate seeds!

  1. Remove the seeds from one pomegranate and crush them until there’s a bit of juice.
  2. Place seeds and juice in a clean sterile jar and fill with gin to roughly about 500ml,
  3. Add a squeeze of lime, however much you like!
  4. Leave your gin to infuse for up to 1-2 weeks in a cool dry place, we recommend a kitchen cupboard!
  5. When ready to consume, mix your gin with equal parts ginger beer and lots of ice.
  6. Finish with an extra squeeze of lime in each glass. Decorate with the infused pomegranate seeds and a lime slice!
How to Make: Non-Alcoholic Sweet Orange 'Mocktail'
Seasonal Cocktails for Your Next Festive Party 
What you need (for 8 small glasses):
  • About 1 cup ice cubes
  • 2 cups orange juice (from about 8 oranges)
  • Fresh lime juice
  • 2–4 tsp. agave (if needed)
  • 1 1/3 cup sparkling water
  • Vanilla essence to taste
  • A few slices of orange for garnish

Tip! For a fun swap, try this with Blood Oranges which have a more sour taste.

  1. Place ice cubes in a 1 litre pitcher and add your orange juice, fresh lime juice, and agave to taste.
  2. Stir to combine, making sure your agave has dissolved in the liquid.
  3. Add vanilla essence for additional sweetness (this may be needed if you opt for blood oranges) and top off with sparkling water.
  4. Pour into glasses and finish with a squeeze of lime.
  5. Garnish with citrus slices.
