*horns blowing* *confetti flying* *everyone screaming* Happy New Year! Whew, okay well not quite but almost! I wanted to give you a cocktail for New Years Eve! I’ve been crazy for Pomegranate juice (not any Pomegranate juice mind you, Pom Wonderful, there’s just something about it, including that incredibly sexy little bottle) lately and knew we’d have to include that in the recipe. I tend to like fruity drinks and this one is right up my alley! I hope it will be up yours as well.
In addition to being slurp worthy, this drink recipe is also a great way to stretch out your champagne bottle! Yep, budget friendly to boot! You’ll want to avoid using a brut or dry for this. Prosecco would even be wonderful. We all know how much I love my Prosecco!
I estimate I can make about 6 glasses with one bottle of Champagne or Prosecco. BUT the amounts you’ll need will depend on how many glasses you’ll be fixing (and of course the size glass you’ll be using ; ).
*Raising my glass to toast you* I hope your 2010 exceeds your expectations! That you’re healthy, happy and surrounded by good food and good company! Chin Chin!
What you’ll need:
Champagne – CHILLED
Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Juice – CHILLED
Pineapple Chunks – reserving the juice as well
What to do:
1. Place enough sugar into a small plate to make sugar rims on your glasses. Run a lemon wedge around the side of your glass and then dip into sugar making a sugar rim.
2. Place 4-6 pieces of pineapple into the bottom of each glass. Fill glass with 1/4 of Pineapple Juice, 1/4 Pomegranate Juice and then top remaining half with Champagne.
3. Garnish rim with a piece of Pineapple. Continue until all glasses are assembled!
