Raspberry Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail

I hope that you have all had a smashing Holidays!

I have loved every moment of having my husband home and my kiddies putting on like a million puppet shows and ballet performances a day and the dog snoring with relaxation and me taking a pretty decent break from working. Don’t we all just need to do that sometimes?

And in a few days we are heading for Palm Springs for a short trip to try and get a sunny Vitamin D hit that supplements just can’t seem to well, supplement for.

We are staying with friends, and I am totally going to volunteer to play bar tender on New Years. I love fun cocktails, (like last New Years Snow Ball Martini and kahlua float or the Blood Orange Champagne Cocktail) and this year’s Raspberry Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail is no exception.

Gorgeous, sweet and fruity- this one is seriously dangerous. I would know, since I tested these on a Wednesday morning and had to take a nap.

What are you doing this New Years? Is the couch calling your name with a tub of buttered popcorn and your favorite sweats? Or is a sequined dress and 4 inch heels more your speed? Let me know- I love to hear about party plans!!

To make this cocktail, this is what you do:

Freeze your glasses until frosty.

Add 2 tablespoons of pomegranate juice to the bottom of each glass. Then add a few small scoops of the raspberry sorbet and 1 tablespoon of pomegranate seeds to each glass.

Top with chilled champagne.

(I continued to top off the glass with more champagne as I drank, because there is more than enough sorbet to flavor several glasses full if you wish.)

Best served with a straw like an ice cream float.
