Pomegranate Potion

Recipe by Mia in Germany
READY IN: 30mins




  • Chill pomegranate juice.
  • Brew black tea with ¾ cup water and 1 teaspoon black tea. Let steep for 3 minutes, then discard the tea leaves.
  • In a little pot, bring brewed tea, minced ginger, allspice berries and ½ cinnamon stick to a slow boil, let simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Before removing from the stove, stir in 2 teaspoons corn syrup.
  • Place 1 ice cube in a mug.
  • Remove from stove, strain liquid through a sieve into the mug, over the ice cube.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Do not chill! Chilling will kill the flavours, and you don't want that.
  • When cooled down to room temperature, add ½ cup chilled pomegranate juice.
  • Enjoy!
  • NOTE: the story continues -- Something reddish – ochre, hardly visible anymore. I spent many nights to restore the ancient, nearly destroyed writing, and then finally, I got it! It was the recipe of a potion made from pomegranate juice and other very obscure ingredients. You better not know what this was meant for, but after removing the more dubious and dangerous ingredients, a wonderful recipe for a recreating, healthy, yet aromatic and spicy potion remained!
