The cherry concentrate gives an extra layer, but isn’t essential. However, I recommend keeping the cherry concentrate in the fridge as a sugar-free cordial. It’s also delicious with hot water.

  • 7 ounces (200 ml) pure pomegranate juice

  • 2 teaspoons Montmorency cherry concentrate

  • Ice cubes

  • 3 good dashes of Angostura bitters

  • Twist of orange peel


Pour the pomegranate juice and cherry concentrate into a glass of ice, then stir well before shaking in the Angostura bitters. The drink should have a bitter-sweet tang, so add more Angostura if needed. Twist the orange peel on top of the drink to release the oils.
