Ancient Egyptians regarded the pomegranate as a symbol of prosperity and ambition. In India's ancient Ayurveda system of medicine, the pomegranate has been used as a source of traditional remedies for thousands of years. Today, it is regarded as a super food and certainly research has shown that pomegranate juice may be effective in reducing heart disease risk.
I love pomegranates, so here is a lovely recipe for a pomegranate mojito.
It includes fresh pomegranate juice, rum, pomegranate liqueur, fresh lime juice and mint. And Milawna explains how to muddle mint which was new to me!
The ingredients are combined into a refreshing and antioxidant-rich cocktail
