POM Wonderful COCKTAIL X 3 Giveaway and recipe for POM Wonderful warming cocktail – CLOSED

POM-Wonderful Giveaway

Pomegranates – have always been tempted to buy them off the wooden fruit vendor handcarts at street markets in Mumbai. Growing up my mum would keep me engaged in her kitchen by assigning me the important job of peeling the fruit and collecting the shiny ruby red juicy insides in a clean bowl – waiting to be sprinkled over her many creations.


In supermarkets shelves here in London, it reminds me of home and I cannot resist buying the peeled ones for salads but making pomeo juice at home has always resulted in a rather messy end result.


Now highly coveted as a highly nutritious super food, packed with antioxidant vitamins C and K, minerals, antioxidants, and other unique plant phytochemicals – pomegranates are firmly a delicious part of our modern day diet.


POM Wonderful sent me a cute cocktail kit and I came up with this recipe for a warming cocktail with a kick of chilli :). My complimentary kit contains a cocktail shaker, measuring beaker, 2 cocktail glasses, cocktail muddler, 2 stirrers, ice-cube maker and bag of Wonderful pistachios.

Serves :1 – Double up measurements for 2


  • 250ml or 1 cup freshly squeezed pomegranate juice* or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
    60ml Martini
  • 10ml concentrated cherry syrup
  • ½  tsp of cinnamon powder
  • 1 sprig of mint crushed

  • 1 sprig of mint

  •  Shake all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker and add a few of the chilli seeds from the split green chilli.
  • Place a slit green chilli on the side of the glass and add a long stem sprig of mint inside the glass for garnish and style
  • Serve chilled.

TOP TIP from me: Chill the washed and dried cocktail glasses in the freezer for about 20 minutes before serving – the frozen glaze on the glass will look beautiful and the cocktail will stay cooler for longer allowing you to sip and enjoy your drink longer.
