Yield: Yields 6 cocktails.
As with any Champagne cocktail, for this recipe you want a moderately priced sparkling wine that tastes good enough to sip on its own, but that you’ll feel all right about mixing. There are plenty of good choices, including Spanish cavas, Italian proseccos and some American sparklers. Steer clear of anything over $16 and save the true Champagne and good sparkling wines for sipping on their own: Their nuances get lost once blended with mixers.

Add a splash of cointreau and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds to each glass. Adds a hint or orange and makes the red color a deep pink! The pomegranate seeds are a delicious garnish.MicheleDiscovery Bay, CA
A refreshing cocktail for early afternoon gatherings...and I liked the side benefit of drinking less alcohol!
I served these on New Year's Eve. I made them a few minutes before we sat down for dinner and placed them at each place setting. Not only was the color beautiful....a pretty red...they tasted fantastic! My guests wanted to continue drinking them well past midnight. I used a champagne that was less than $10 per bottle as suggested. This will be a New Year's staple for years to come. Highly recommend!
