  1. Gently heat the caster sugar and 250ml water in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil then simmer for 3 mins until slightly thickened; remove from the heat.
  2. Blitz the pomegranate seeds in a food processor until juiced. Pass through a sieve into a large bowl; you should have around 175ml of liquid. Stir in the orange juice, sugar syrup and lime juice. Leave to cool, then transfer to the fridge for 1 hr.
  3. Pour into a freezable container and freeze for 24 hrs. To serve, whizz the frozen mixture in a food processor, scoop into glasses and scatter with extra pomegranate seeds.
