pomegranate sour.


A delicious drink for a worthy cause; bottlegreen have turned bottlepink to raise money for Breakthough Breast Cancer. The refreshing blend of exotic pomegranate and sweet elderflower will be sold across the UK with 10% of sales donated to charity. 

I wanted to show my support by featuring the drink in a recipe inspired by one of my favourite cocktails, the amaretto sour. This is a mocktail but can be created as an alcoholic version too.



Shopping list. 
♥ bottlepink pomegranate and elderflower cordial 
♥ Cherry juice
♥ Fresh lemon juice
♥ Pomegranate seeds
♥ Brown sugar
♥ Lots of crushed ice
♥ Optional; a spirit such as amaretto or dark rum to enhance the flavour. or a white spirit such as vodka for subtle alcohol content.



Step one. Simply muddle the flavours together with 1/4 bottlepink and 3/4 cherry juice. if you'd prefer it with amaretto liqueur too, simply add around 1/4 and reduce the cherry juice to half. 

Step two. Squeeze in half the lemon, stir through the sugar and scatter with pomegranate seeds.

Step three. Shake with crushed ice, if you have a shaker. otherwise just stir.

Step four. Layer on more ice and pomegranate seeds to finish. 


Please remember to give to this fantastic cause. I did the race for life 5k this year too, so if drink isn't your thing there is always a way to donate

Note: i was send a complimentary bottle of bottlepink to feature. however I support the charity and will be donating my share. All opinions are honest and my own.
