Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail #Progressive Eats

I created this Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail for a holiday dinner club gathering, and it would be perfect to toast in the new year and more!Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail | Pomegranate juice, Grand Marnier and Champagne dance together in this fabulous sparkling cocktail!

Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail

When ruby red pomegranates start appearing on the scene, I know the holidays are upon us. I rarely make a “signature” drink for a gathering, but this was for our dinner club. It was fun to go the extra mile. All I needed were a few limes, some pomegranate juice and Champagne and we were ready to roll. The base of the drink can be made ahead of time, in fact it does need a 2 hour period in the fridge for the flavors to meld. Then when your guests arrive, all that’s required is the bubbly topper and a fruit garnish!
