Did you know it’s World Cocktail Week?
Well it is…so it’s time to bring out the cocktail shaker and whip up something fabulous. You may already know that I have penchant for Pomegranate cocktails…there’s been the Pomegranate Cosmo, Pomegranate Mojito, Non-alcoholic Pom-Ade and Cranberry and Pomegranate Martini. And in celebration of this very special week I recreated Gourmet Traveller’s Pomegranate Caprioska.

Place two wedges of lime in a cocktail shaker with the vodka, pomegranate juice and sugar or syrup. Muddle the ingredients together, then add plenty of ice and shake well. Strain into a lowball glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with the remaining 2 lime wedges.
