Featured Cocktail: Blood Orange & Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice (from about 1 medium blood orange)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar per glass (optional)
  • 2 cups champagne
  • Additional blood orange slices + pomegranate arils for garnish

Method:

Set out 4 champagne flutes – if they’re chilled, all the better! Divide juices between each glass (about 1 tablespoon of each type of juice per glass). Add sugar, if using, and stir until dissolved. Fill the cups almost to the top with Prosecco or champagne. Pour slowly – there will be fizz! Drop in a few pomegranate arils and top with an orange slice. Serve.

Pour a healthy splash of cognac (or any brandy) and Grand Marnier into a chilled champagne flute and fill to the top with Brut Champagne for a slightly stronger, yet still civilized cocktail.
