From “Great Gatherings: Star Chefs Entertain at Home” by the Macy’s Culinary Council (Book Kitchen, $29.95). This bubbly pink cocktail is definitely worth the stained fingers a pomegranate always seems to entail. I substituted prosecco just because I love it, but any sparkling wine will do.
- 11/2 cups (12 ounces) pomegranate liqueur, chilled
- 4 cups (1 quart) California sparkling wine, chilled
- 1/4 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)
- Chilled champagne flutes
To make each drink, pour 3 tablespoons (11/2 ounces) liqueur into a flute. Gently pour 1/2 cup (4 ounces) sparkling wine over the liqueur. Add 11/2 teaspoons pomegranate seeds and serve immediately.
Makes 8 drinks.
