If you’re joining your girlfriends later this week for a little Galentine’s Day celebration, I wanted to share a quick and festive pomegranate punch for the big day. Think of this sparkling treat like a mimosa, but instead of orange juice, use a yummy mixture of pomegranate and grapefruit juice. The result is a pink mimosa that is perfectly ladylike…but let’s be real, I’m sure guys will love it too.
Let me know if you give it a try for Galentine’s Day, or any other event coming up this spring.
– ½ cup granulated sugar
– ½ cup water
– 2 cups grapefruit juice*
– 1 cup pomegranate juice – such as POM
– 1 bottle Rose Champagne, well chilled
– Pomegranate arils to garnish
Heat the sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat – until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool completely. Refrigerate until cold – at least 2 hours. Combine the simple syrup, grapefruit juice, and pomegranate juice in a large pitcher and chill for at least 1 hour.
Combine 2 ounces of the grapefruit mixture with 4 ounces of the chilled rose in a champagne flute. Garnish with a few pomegranate arils.
*Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice is simply stunning in this festive take on a traditional mimosa, but for a time-saver look for fresh squeezed grapefruit juice in the produce section of your local market.All celebration Cocktail of the Week Cocktails Crushing On dinner party Entertaining Events Holidays love Parties party tips Recipes specialty cocktails Uncategorized valentine's day valentines day : Tags: annette joseph, Cocktail, Cocktail of the Week, Cocktails, entertaining, food styling, friends, parties, pomegranate, punch, recipe, recipes, valentines day
