Paint the Town Red
Toast to your Valentine with this fruity cocktail perfect for the occasion—pomegranates represent fruitfulness and fertility.
- 1 c. sweetened pomegranate juice
- 1 bottle champagne
- Pomegranate seeds, for garnish
- In champagne flutes, fill with 1/4 cup sweetened pomegranate juice and top off with champagne.
- Garnish with pomegranate seeds.
Consider adding a splash of hibiscus syrup—it’s a bit sweeter than pomegranate—and using pomegranate liquor instead of juice for an extra kick. Then garnish each glass with a hibiscus bloom to add a romantic touch.”
