For your next winter celebration, enjoy a tasty Pomegranate Mimosa cocktail, made with pomegranate and orange juice, champagne, and a secret ingredient!
I’m a huge fan of champagne. Its one of those drinks that tastes wonderful and gives me quite the buzz. It took me a few years spanning from my early 20s to my early 30s, but I’ve finally perfected the rate and volume at which I can consume champagne to reap the maximum benefit without any of the horrible side effects. There’s another life goal I can scratch off the list!
You know I’m a fan of pomegranates. Its one of those wondrous foods that I completely adore, yet didn’t try until I was well into my adulthood. You know, like beets. I’m not sure I had even heard of a pomegranate, as a matter of fact, until I had been adulting for a good decade or so. Then, once I saw one, it probably took a few years before I found the courage to actually crack one open and extract the seeds.
Now everyone knows mimosas are a classic drink, and I enjoy them morning, noon, and night. Who says they have to be a breakfast drink? Not me. But a basic OJ + champagne cocktail is boring, if you ask me. My secret ingredient to an amazing mimosa is a splash of Grand Marnier. Then, you can totally play around with your creativity and make cocktails like this one. Why not try a grapefruit mimosa? That’s another favorite.
The best part about this drink, in my opinion, are the pomegranate seeds soaking on top. If you ask me, a bowl of fresh pomegranate seeds soaking in champagne should be considered a complete meal.
Watch me make this tasty cocktail here:
- 2 ounces pomegranate juice
- 2 ounces orange juice
- 1 ounce Grand Marnier
- 10 pomegranate arils
- In a champagne flute, combine pomegranate juice, orange juice, and grand marnier. Top with chilled champagne and continue to slowly add until the glass if filled. Add pomegranate arils (seeds) at the end.
- Serve and enjoy!
