Pomegranate Cocktail | Makes 1
July 2013 Issue
Try this fruity drink, concocted by food writer Robin Davis.
Food writer Robin Davis, author of Recipe for Joy, started the tradition of serving candlelight breakfasts on Valentine’s Day the first year she was married, and created this cocktail (with a nonalcoholic option) for the holiday. It has since become the family’s celebratory drink on special occasions in any season.
1 tablespoon chilled pomegranate juice
1 cup chilled sparkling wine such as Prosecco
1 teaspoon orange liqueur such as Grand Marnier
orange peel twist or orange slice for garnish
Pour the pomegranate juice into a Champagne flute or wine glass. Fill with sparkling wine. Top with orange liqueur. Garnish with orange peel or an orange slice.
To make a nonalcoholic version, substitute nonalcoholic sparkling cider for the sparkling wine and orange juice for the orange liqueur.
