Preparation of pomegranate liqueur

  1. Start with the most boring preparation: shell the pomegranate trying to eliminate all the residues of white peel. Transfer all the beans to an airtight glass container, cover with alcohol, add cinnamon and a few cloves, close with the lid and leave to rest for 10 days in a dark and dry place.
  2. Remember to shake the glass jar once a day. After the days of infusion, prepare the syrup: put the sugar and water in a large pot, put it on the stove and cook over low heat to dissolve the sugar.
  3. When the sugar is completely dissolved, turn off the heat and let it cool completely. Take the seeds back to infuse and filter the liquid with the help of a fine mesh strainer. Add the cold syrup to the alcohol, mix and transfer to a glass bottle.
  4. Close the bottle and let it rest for another 20 days before consuming your homemade liqueur.
