It’s as simple as that to whip up this cherry pomegranate cocktail! If you like things a little sweeter then you could add some agave or similar to the mix, but I like that it is on the tarter side. Fresh or frozen cherries both work well – just defrost them first if they are frozen. In fact, I think I prefer the frozen option as they seem to release more juice – plus I just love eating fresh cherries!

I particularly love how quick this cherry pomegranate cocktail is to whip up. No one wants to be spending ages making fresh drinks for everyone over and over when you’re entertaining! I definitely recommend you give this a try at any gatherings you host this summer! I particularly love that I can pick mint from my balcony for this one – it doesn’t get fresher than that!
