Ingredients (serves 16):


1. To make the sugar syrup, mix together the sugar, water, lemon grass pieces and juniper berries in a small saucepan.
2. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved.
3. Strain the syrup into a plastic container and refrigerate until ready to use. The syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week.
4. To make the martini, fill a cocktail shaker with 1 tbs crushed ice. Add the vodka, lemon grass sugar syrup, lychee juice and pomegranate juice, shake until well mixed and chilled. Strain into a martini glass, top up with sparkling water as desired and add a few pomegranate seeds. Slowly pour the pomegranate juice over the back of a spoon so that the juice settles at the bottom of the glass.
5. Serve immediately, garnished with a lychee and lime slice threaded onto a cocktail stick.
