Cocktail Hour: Gin, Apple & Pomegranate Fizz

When I was a little girl, my mum would often take me shopping with her on a Saturday morning. I never minded too much, because shopping is the best, but as a reward for being good, she’d always take me for tea and cake afterwards. The cake tended to be a cookie the size of my face, and as for the tea – well, I’ve never been a fan, so I’d always request an Appletiser instead. Apple juice was always a bit of a treat – although it’s not expensive, when you have a child who is more than capable of polishing off a family-size carton in a day, it kind of had to be a luxury.

Even though I’m a grown-up now and can buy all the apple based drinks I want, I’ve still always thought of Appletiser as a treat. I don’t think I’m the only one, as they sent me their new Pomegranate & Apple flavour to try out in the poshest box imaginable! And, in the spirit of being a grown-up now… I added gin to it.

Appletiser DID actually ask me to think of some cocktails to make up with this drink, so I have an excuse for the gin! It’s a really tasty drink, by the way – we tried it with and without booze, and it’s refreshing and fruity and lovely. Technically this isn’t really a cocktail at all as it’s only two ingredients (apparently the rule is that a cocktail has to have three) but it was super tasty. Next time, I’d like to try topping it up with Prosecco – yum, right?



  1. This sounds so good! I know what you mean about Appletiser though, we always have it at special occasions like Christmas and Easter.

  2. DEFINITELY try with prosecco!

    Apple and gin is one of my favouritest combinations. I had a cocktails with it the other day and they added a bit of lime in it for some sourness. Worked great! :) xx
