Prosecco and Pomegranate Sparklers
I love this drink for the New Year. It’s crisp, fresh flavor keeps things light with all the partying ahead. And the pomegranate juice provides lots of nutrients to assuage your guilt.
Pomegranate is traditionally served as it is believed to cleanse us of longing, leaving us open and fresh for the New Year. We also serve this drink with grapes dropped into the glass since Italians believe grapes bring luck.
1 bottle prosecco, chilled
1 bottle unsweetened pomegranate juice, chilled
Pour equal amounts of prosecco and pomegranate juice into champagne flutes. Add a squeeze of lime juice to each glass and garnish each with a thin wedge of lime. Drop a few grapes into each glass as you serve. Serve cold. Makes about 8-10 servings.
Note: You can make this drink with sparkling apple juice or sparkling water if you choose not to consume alcohol.
