Ingredients

  • pomegranates 4
  • white caster sugar 100g
  • brown sugar lumps 3
  • lime 1, sliced
  • Champagne 1 bottle

Method

  • Step 1

    Juice the pomegranates by pressing them in a citrus press, using a citrus juicer or by releasing all the flesh from the membrane and pulsing it in a blender before sieving out the pips.

  • Step 2

    Dissolve the caster sugar in 2 tbsp water and then simmer it until you have a very thick, sticky syrup, then stir in the pomegranate juice to make fresh grenadine. Cool, then cover with clingfilm. This will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  • Step 3

    Crack the sugar lumps in half (or into large pieces). Drop a piece each into 6 champagne glasses, then add a measure of grenadine and a slice of lime to each one. Top up with champagne (it will fizz up quite a lot because of the sugar) and serve.
