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.

    How gorgeous are these! I bet they would be scrumptious made with pear or apple sparkling cider for a non alcoholic version for the kids.

    • They are Vicki, and we did try them with Trader Joes sparkling “chardonnay” Juice (Non-alcoholic) and they were a huge hit!

  2. Perfect for NYE! Love the sparkle in this :)

  3. With an 11-month-old in the house, we are facing a pretty lame NYE. But that’s fine. :) These drinks are beyond pretty! Love them. And Palm Springs sounds so fabulous. As a native Seattlite I’ve long treasured the therapeutic properties of a vacation somewhere sunny in the midst of our dreary winter. Makes such a big difference! Enjoy.

    • Oh Kare- with a 3 and 5 year old, ours will still be lame! A few more years till we are back to “normal” I suspect! Thank you! I know that some people might think of those kind of mini-breaks as very extravagent, but natives here know that they are practically essential to making it through the long gray patches unscathed! However- I think we have a few days of sun starting tomorrow! Happy New Years!

    Delish!!!!! Where did you get the glasses??? Love them!!!!!

    Heather, these are stunning and oh-so-fun! Our family tradition is to sip a cocktail or champagne before our fancy family dinner on Christmas Eve and these will be our drink this year. I love how festive they look and how easily they can be switched to a non-alcoholic version for the kids (or those who choose not to have alcohol). The stripey straws are a must!
