One way art historians discuss art is through iconographic analysis. This essentially means they determine the meaning of an artwork based off of the objects included in it and what those objects symbolize. If I were to analyze the iconography of this pomegranate print by Yes Menu, for example, I could say this print represents prosperity and ambition based on the pomegranate's symbolism in Ancient Egypt (just one of many interpretations of pomegranate imagery). It's just seeds you say? You may be right, but isn't it much more interesting to look beyond the surface image to the potential meaning behind it? Look at us thinking about iconography, high five. This deserves a sophisticated cocktail... with a twist. The Pomegranate Gin and Tonic.
Pomegranate Gin and Tonic
2 ounces gin (I used Bombay Sapphire Gin... and 1 ounce is equal to 1 shot glass - did everyone already know this except me??) 4 ounces tonic water 2 ounces pomegranate juice (I used POM 100% pomegranate juice) lime for garnish
Pour gin, tonic water, and pomegranate juice into a cocktail shaker. Gently shake. Pour over ice. Time to enjoy.
