Pomegranate Rose Champagne Cocktails

Here's what you need to do:

Get a bottle of champagne. A decent one! Or at least some good dry sparkling wine.

Get a pomegranate, too.

And some grenadine. But not the sugary kind. I mean the real kind of grenadine.

Oh you didn't know that was a thing? It is. Grenadine originally was a sweet syrup made from pomegranate juice (pomegranate in Spanish is actually "granada," so there is your language lesson for the day!).

The stuff in Shirley Temples is...not the same.

And then the other thing you need is some rose water. You might already have this if, like me, you're obsessed with floral-flavored things.

And now you're going to reward yourself by making this cocktail.

A bit of that sweet (real!) syrup, a dash of rosewater, and some pomegranate arils (don't they look like jewels!?) topped off with bubbly.

So simple. So gorgeous.

This is a perfect one to serve at a girl's brunch or bookclub meeting or bachelorette.

Or you can just enjoy it at home on a random Sunday, like I did.

This is one supremely gorgeous and very instagrammable (that's a word. I swear.) cocktail.


Pomegranate Rose Champagne Cocktails
Serves 2 (multiply as needed) 

2 tablespoons pomegranate arils
2 tablespoons real grenadine syrup (made with pomegranate)
1/2 teaspoon rose water
Dry champagne, chilled

Divide pomegranate arils into two coupe or champagne flutes. Add 1 tablespoon of grenadine to each glass, followed by 1/4 teaspoon of rose water. (If you like a stronger rose flavor, you can add more, but start off with 1/4 teaspoon to be safe.)

Top off each glass with chilled champagne and serve immediately.
