Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail

The Sparkling Pomegranate: A Simply Stunning Sipper

Holiday festivities are neither the time nor place for a drink that requires an extensive ingredient list or excessive time spent mixing each drink. Instead, turn to a classic category, champagne cocktails, when looking for a drink whose wow factor far exceeds the effort expended, so you can get on with the celebration at hand.

Crisp sparkling wine is elegant and festive enough on its own; a splash of mouth-puckering pomegranate liqueur and a fragrant lemon twist simply elevate it to the next level. It's sure to start your night off right, whether you choose to make these cocktails to order or decide to place the requisite ingredients next to the simple recipe for a self-service cocktail bar.

Toast to the season with a tipple that's as simple to construct as it is to enjoy.

Notes

For an alternative (or additional) garnish to the lemon twists, try sprinkling a few pomegranate arils into each glass.
