Hello food lovers! It’s Jewels again from Liz & Jewels with another episode of Food in Motion for decor8. I am super excited to share this months delicious food video and recipe with you – this time it’s for a boozy concoction – yum!
Here in New York City it is covered in snow. The streets are icy and we have to watch our every step. The only way to identify our car is a white silhouette that is roughly the same size and shape. It’s buried. We haven’t used it in weeks! As much as I see the beauty in the white curtain that covers everything, I am looking forward to warmer days. I like hot summers, cold drinks, small clothes, large straw hats, secretly turning the AC off in our living room (my husband likes it cold)… Can’t wait.
So this month’s Food in Motion video is a message from me to the weather gods: Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring! I made a pomegranate sorbet with sparkling wine. It is such a refreshing, colorful summery dessert! I envision myself eating this in a few months on our fire escape that I call the balcony.
Are you guys ready to say goodbye to the winter? If so, try this: 1 pomegranate 1 cup of sparkling wine 1 lemon 4 tablespoons of sugar mint leaves Cut the pomegranate into a couple of large pieces. In a bowl filled with water peel out the little seeds. The water prevents you from having red stains all over your clothes and kitchen. Put all seeds in a mixer and puree them. Pour the pomegranate mash through a sieve to extract the juice and get rid of the larger pieces. Mix the pomegranate juice with the sparkling wine, the lemon, and the sugar, and pour it into a serving bowl. Freeze for at least 4 hours, stirring once after about two hours. Serve with mint leaves.
See you next month with another recipe and a video! – Jewels
