Sparkling Pomegranate Punch

mimosa

drank

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.

Cheers!

Sparkling Pomegranate Punch
Serves 6
You will need:

– 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

To prepare:

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.

Giggle Punch


I am so excited to have the bubbly and vivacious Cheryl Day here today, sharing her favorite cocktail. Cheryl owns the incredible Back in the Day bakery, along with her cute husband Griff. Their bakery is recognized nationally and locally for its homespun decadent desserts and delicious rustic breads, as well as the warm and friendly atmosphere that has made them a food landmark. Cheryl’s enthusiasm for enriching lives through the time-honored art of scratch baking is one of her most enduring qualities, along with a few dance moves from her Soul Train days. She is the co-author of The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook, Artisan books. In short she’s a gem.

We live in Savannah, Georgia. I live a baker’s life, rising early in the A.M, working long hours, baking great food for good people. So when I want an end of the week cocktail, I keep it simple and I go straight for my giggle punch to wind down from a long week… cheers! – Cheryl
