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.
You will need:
7 ounces (200 ml) pure pomegranate juice
2 teaspoons Montmorency cherry concentrate
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.
