Pomegranate Cocktail Recipe

Prosecco is a dry, lemony sparkling wine that is sure to put everyone in a festive spirit. If you’re pressed for time, use straight pomegranate juice instead of the syrup for these pretty cocktails.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz pomegranate juice
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) Prosecco, or Cava

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, heat pomegranate juice over medium-high heat until reduced to 1/2 cup, approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of the sugar until dissolved. Transfer mixture to a glass measuring cup and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 6 hours.
  2. Over a small coffee saucer, zest the orange and squeeze the juice over the zest. In another coffee saucer, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  3. Dip a champagne flute, rim side down, in the juice/zest mixture, then in the sugar. Repeat with remaining glasses. When ready to serve, add 1/2 ounce of the pomegranate syrup to the bottom of each champagne flute. Fill each glass to two-thirds full with the Prosecco.
