Pomegranate liqueur is a sweet and tangy concoction of simple manufacture and outstanding quality.

The liqueur can be substituted for other fruit liqueurs and brandies such as Cointreau, Chambord or Cherry Heering in most any recipe, or in place of grenadine for a stronger, drier cocktail than the original drink.

Serves: 1 fifth
  • 2 large pomegranates
  • 1 Cup sugar
