About this pomegranate cocktail
In my humble opinion the holidays just aren’t THE HOLIDAYS without some serious sparkle. Tinsel covered trees, twinkly lights, decorative sugar covered desserts, glittery mistletoe, and metallic sequined party dresses… you get the picture.
But the sparkle should NOT stop there.
I mean, holidays = ALL the sparkle humanly possible.
Basically, it should look like Tinker Bell and her pixie dust threw your party and brought it back to the dazzling disco ball era. Think studio 54, glitz and glamour.
So, obviously your holiday cocktails also NEED to shine!! Pairing bubbly prosecco (or sparkling wine) with pomegranates, oranges, and a sparkly sugar rim is the perfect elegant drink for all your holiday celebrations.
Why you’ll love this drink recipe
This cocktail is what I will be cheering with all holiday season… and probably well into the New Year. Here’s why:
- Refreshing Flavor! Tart from the pomegranate, citrusy from the blood orange liqueur, and effervescent from the bubbly Prosecco, this prosecco pomegranate cocktail is a ideally refreshing with the perfect effervescent crispness.
- Glam! Garnish this sparkly holiday pomegranate cocktail with fresh mint, pops of jeweled pomegranate arils and serve them in a glitzy, glittery sugared rim for a drink worthy of any celebration.
- Easy Cocktail Recipe! Rim your champagne glasses with sugar, pour your cocktail, and enjoy! It honestly doesn’t get any easier than that – you don’t even need to shake or stir.
Festive, fizzy, and fun – this cocktail is essentially holiday sass in a glass.
Tips for the best pomegranate prosecco cocktail
- Do NOT skip the garnishes. Normally I say garnishes are completely optional, but since this IS the holidays, I firmly believe you should just go all out. The sweet, sugary rim perfectly balances the tartness of the cocktail, while the pomegranate arils add a touch of pizazz and the mint adds a nice freshness (along with some festive green color).
- Batch It. Instead of making this as individual cocktails, you could serve this out of a pitcher or as a party punch. To do so, simply add the liqueur, pomegranate juice, pomegranate arils and a few mint leaves to a pitcher or bowl and place it in the refrigerator. Line the rims of a few glasses with the sugar and set aside. When ready to serve add the prosecco and let your guest help themselves.
- Serving: If you’re looking for more holiday drinks for your home bar, serve your cocktail with pomegranate seeds with the following fan favorites: Peppermint Holiday Cocktail and/or Apple Cider Cocktail.
Add sparkle and flare to your holiday season with this Pomegranate and Prosecco holiday drink.
Until next week friends, cheers! To making spirits bright.
More bubbly holiday cocktails!
