Since the days of dimly lit English taverns with exposed beams and the culture of barmaids, alcoholic beverages have been served with bar snacks. Be it mead from years long ago or today's fruity cocktails, social drinking begs for snacks that are quick, flavourful and accompany a drinker's chosen tipple.

Wonderful Pistachios Sweet Chilli Pistachios from Anyonita Nibbles

Pom Wonderful is a sweet-but-sour pomegranate juice drink available in a variety of flavours, but my favourite is pomegranate with cloudy apple. Wonderful Pistachios are flavoured and plain pistachios that perfectly accompany a glass of Pom Wonderful, whether you mix it into a cocktail or enjoy it straight from the bottle.

Pomengranates & Pistachios--a match made in heaven! From Anyonita Nibbles

Pom Wonderful is perfect as a cocktail base. It's both fruity and sour and it's not overly thick as a lot of pomegranate juice can be. It's an ideal texture for mixing with spirits and other cocktail components. This recipe is my version of a classed up mojito. I've swapped the mint for fresh coriander as it works naturally well with pomegranate for a fresh and fruity cocktail you'll love! If you're teetotal or don't fancy the rum, simply omit it. The mixed flavours of the Pom Wonderful make a great base for a mocktail, too!
