Pomegranate Schnapps

Pomegranate schnapps - based on the juicy seed pulps from fully ripe pomegranates - is delicious and really outstanding. Fruity, sweet-acid taste. Wonderful fragrance and flavours. And a beautiful red-golden colour.

Serve with chicken and other poultry, lamb, veal, rice, shellfish, salmon, salads, fruit salads, cheese, cheese cakes, ice creams, baked pears and other desserts.

Or add it to soups, sauces, salad dressings, marinades, marmalades, sorbets, ice creams - and to dishes where you would normally use pomegranate juice.

Also great in hot tea and a pleasant alternative to grenadine syrup in various cocktails and drinks.

You can also turn your schnapps into a liqueur.

Recipe

Pomegranate - Punica granatumPomegranate - Punica granatum

For best result, use seed pulps from fully ripe pomegranates of good quality. Organic if available. Cut the pomegranates in quarters, pull back and gently pull out the seed pulps. Discard everything else.

Direction:

  • Place seed pulps from 1-2 fully ripe pomegranates into a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid.

  • Add 35 cl clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof).

  • Let steep for 3-4 weeks in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F).

  • Shake lightly and taste it from time to time.

  • Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid.

  • Store (age) for a month or more in a dark place at room temperature before serving.

Note: If for some reason you are not satisfied with your infusion, there are ways to adjust both taste and flavours - click here to see how.

Serve your pomegranate schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
