Instructions

  • 1 To make the Sugar Syrup, mix together the sugar, water, lemon grass and Juniper Berries in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • 2 Strain the syrup into a plastic container and refrigerate until ready to use. The syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  • 3 To make the martini, fill a cocktail shaker with 1 tbs crushed ice. Add the vodka, Lemon Grass Sugar Syrup, lychee juice and pomegranate juice, shake until well mixed and chilled. Strain into a martini glass, top up with sparkling water as desired and add a few pomegranate seeds.
  • 4 Slowly pour the pomegranate juice over the back of a spoon so that the juice settles at the bottom of the glass. Serve immediately, garnished with a lychee and lime slice threaded onto a cocktail stick.
