Intro: Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail to Ring in the New Year
Well 2010 is over. It was definitely a year of high and lows and now I’m looking forward to 2011. I hope everyone had a great New Year’s. New Year’s Eve is always a day for family get-togethers and fireworks. And who can forget the infamous countdown to midnight. Even though it's a little too late, I’ve got the perfect recipe for ringing in the new year: Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail. I made a non-alcoholic version but you can substitute other drinks for the sparkling grape juice I used.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 3 cups of sparkling grape juice- I think this adds a unique flavor to the drink but you can definitely substitute other kinds of “bubbly” instead.
- 2 cups of pomegranate juice- I bought the POM brand of pomegranate juice. Have you heard of any others?
- 1 1/2 cups of orange juice
- To add some originality to the drink, I put in a couple of dried cranberries that were infused with pomegranate juice. I also tried adding some peppermint to the drink by stirring a candy cane in the drink. It didn’t do too much so I crushed some up, put some lime juice on the edge of the glasses, and adding the peppermint there.
Step 2: Adding the Ingredients
Measure out all your ingredients. Be sure to get a pitcher or bowl large enough to put all of the drink in.
Step 3: Mixing and Finish!
Stir and enjoy!
Try this on any New Year's Eve even though this drink is great for all occasions. Happy New Year!! I hope this ible wasn’t too out of date for you :) I hope everyone has a great 2011!
