Pomegranate has long been hailed as a promoter of fertility and for having amazing health benefits such as boosting the immune system, preserving youthful vitality and promoting longevity – claims that stand up to modern research*.
Enjoy this tangy recipe as an energising breakfast blend or add a splash of vodka or rum for cocktails.
PASSION FRUIT PUNCH
1 x 500ml bottle pure pomegranate juice
Juice of 2 limes
Juice of 1 orange
2 tsp finely minced ginger
Lime or orange slices for garnish (optional)
Combine all the ingredient except the garnish in a small glass or plastic storage container and chill in the fridge for at least two hours to allow the zippy flavour of the ginger to infuse the juices.
Decide whether you want to strain out the ginger. If you leave it in, just chew it as you enjoy the drink – it freshens breath and aids digestion, too.
Shake the punch well and pour into chilled glasses with or without ice.
Garnish with citrus slices if you wish.
