Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed pomegranate juice or bottled pomegranate juice, such as POM
  • 1 (1.5-ounce) jigger pomegranate liqueur
  • 1 (1.5-ounce) jigger vodka
  • Prosecco or sparkling wine
  • Pomegranate seeds, for garnish
  • Slice of lime, for garnish
  • Sprig of rosemary, for garnish
Instructions
  1. In a large glass filled with ice, add the pomegranate juice, and top with the liqueur and vodka. Stir the glass to combine. Pour enough sparkling wine to fill the glass. Stir again. Garnish with a few pomegranate seeds, a slice of lime, and a sprig of rosemary.
Notes
There are several brands of pomegranate liqueur on the market and I recently saw the PAMA brand pomegranate liqueur at my local Albertson's. Don't break the bank buying French Champagne; any good, moderately priced sparkling wine will work with these ingredients. I admit that using the POM store-bought juice is an easier path to this cocktail, but please bring fresh pomegranate seeds to the party. And the rosemary sprig is a must to add a Christmas tree tingle to the nose with every sip.
