Pomegranate Prosecco

Pomegranate Prosecco ~ is a blend of pomegranate juice, simple syrup and Italian prosecco!
Prosecco is a lively, Italian sparkling wine that is essential to having a good time, Italian-style! This is a festive cocktail you can make with just 3 ingredients and prepare as your guests arrive.

Italian Prosecco always adds an element of festivity to any gathering or meal, and is easy to pair with any kind of food. The fruity flavor of pomegranate makes this cocktail a delightful aperitif!

Just pour some pomegranate juice into each glass, add a splash of a flavored simple syrup of your choice and fill the rest of the glass with prosecco!  Easy peasy!

Be sure to chill both bottles before serving.

Pomegranate juice is a little tart for me so I added a splash of strawberry flavored syrup that I found at Whole Foods while shopping.  The lady behind the counter was giving out samples and in different flavors.  I fell in love with the strawberry flavored syrup.  It was sweet and fresh tasting.  And the idea of not having to make the syrup myself, makes it worth the price.

And, finally, toss in some pomegranate seeds and maybe even a fresh mint leaf for additional festive touch and color, and serve!


Make this holiday a festive one with this pomegranate prosecco as your cocktail to serve with your appetizers!  Cheers!
