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 simple syrup and then pour in chilled prosecco to fill the glass. Pomegranate is a little tart for me so I added a splash of a strawberry flavored simple syrup I found at Whole Foods while shopping.  The lady behind the counter was giving out samples. I fell in love with the flavor and the idea of not having to make my own, well - you get the idea!

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!
