These days, whether I’m at a shopping mall or a grocery store, I can’t seem to leave the house without hearing familiar Christmas jingles that play on in my head even as I write this blog. After all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! But did you know that it’s also the most POM Wonderful time of the year? If you haven’t noticed the crimson beauties at your local market, look out: pomegranates are in peak season and bursting with flavor. That’s why I asked POM Wonderful to share a festive ho, ho, ho holiday drink recipe.
Since pomegranates are packed with potent antioxidents, this POM Mimosa is a healthier way to enjoy a little liquid Christmas cheer and toast to the new year. Holiday hosts and hostesses take note: This drink is so easy to make, it won’t steal you away from enjoying your own party. And its sparkling red hue will compliment all your holiday decor and that red Christmas sweater too. Cheers!
Makes 1 mimosa
1/2 oz. pomegranate juice, such as POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 glass of dry champagne (5-6 ounces)
1/2 oz. Cointreau
pomegranate arils, for garnish, optional
1. Pour champagne into a champagne flute.
2. Add pomegranate juice and float the Cointreau on top.
3. Toss in a few pomegranate arils for garnish, if using.
