Although it’s not quite as exciting as a Sidecar this fragrant ‘Pomegranate & Thyme’ cocktail alternative has enough layers of flavour to feel like a grown-up drink – crucially separating from it juice counterparts. Served in a vintage cocktail glass and adorned with a sprig of thyme, a few pomegranate seeds and a satsuma peel twist, I can honestly ‘hand-on-my-heart’ say I didn’t miss the booze.
- Juice the pomegranate, satsumas and lime and place in a cocktail shaker with several ice-cubes.
- Gently rub the sprigs of thyme between your fingers to release the flavour and add to shaker along with agave if using.
- Shake vigorously until thoroughly muddled.
- Adorn glasses with a sprig of thyme, slice of lime, pomegranate seeds and satsuma peel.
- Pour and enjoy.
