Pomegranate and Ginger Sorbet

Voila ! Here is another recipe to cool this summer. I am so thrilled with this Sorbet. It has been my best of all the Sorbets i have made till date. I am a huge fan of the seeped ginger flavour in teas and lemonades. Ofcourse , i hate biting into it. So if you like the potent flavour of this kitchen spice, you will definitely love this sorbet recipe. It felt really special and royal. I had no idea that a combination of Pomegranate with ginger would taste so awesome until today. ( P.S I actually finished half the sorbet myself. hehehe ) . 

If you want to make this recipe into a Pomegranate Mocktail, just dont freeze it. Chiil the mixture, rim your Martini glasses with granulated sugar and pour the mixture in.  Garnish with a slice of lemon and you have your very own Mocktail made in simple steps

You will need :
Freshly squeezed Pomegranate juice - 2 cups
Lime Cordial - 1/2 cup
Grated Ginger - 1 tsp
Sprite or 7 up or other flavoured Carbonated water - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup

Remove the seeds from the Pomegranate and juice it in a blender.
Use a fine sieve to remove the seeds from the juice.
I used about 6 fruits to get 2 cups of juice.
Heat one cup of the juice with the ginger and sugar. Boil for about 5 minutes.
Strain again into the remaining juice to remove the ginger pieces.
Add the lime cordial and the carbonated water. Mix well.
Freeze it in the deepest part of your freezer for about 2 hours.
When it is semi set, remove it and blend it to break the ice crystals.
Repeat the freezing and blending process 3 more times. The mantra is "the more times you blend it , the more fluffy your sorbet will be".
