Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails

My Girls Night In party was a week ago already!
I just had so much fun and we thoroughly enjoyed
watching Bridesmaids and sipping on a cocktail.

For this evening we had to have a pink cocktail!
I adore champagne cocktails...oooh my fave for sure,
and perfect for a Parisian inspired event!

This is a super simple recipe and can also be made non alcoholic
by using gingerale, sprite or sparkling water in place of champagne.

Ingredients
  • Sparkling Wine (or champagne). When I mix a drink like this I like a good base but I did not go for the super-expensive champagne. I picked a good quality sparkling wine. You can do whatever the heck you want though!
  • Bitters (found in the liquor section)
  • Sugar cubes
  • Pomegranate juice (Pink)
  • Rimming sugar, optional

MIX IT!
Optional: Ms. Rook No. 17 brought some pink rimming sugar! To use, dampen the rim of the glass, and then dip it in the sugar. Easy-peasy!

*Place 2 sugar cubes in a flute.
*Sprinkle (I prefer to douse, but I like the bitters) the biters on the sugar cubes - start with a few sprinkles and work your way up from there - be sue you find the taste you prefer. Let absorb.
*Pour champagne about 2/3
*Add pomegranate juice to top off. Enjoy!


I used these CUTE Canvas Corp Chalk Stock Cards to write the recipe for the cocktail. I wanted to make sure there were instruction available to guests so they could make their own cocktail, or at least know what is in the cocktail.

  5. ooo, HOLLY GIRL...this looks magnificent. I could drink a whole glass without taking it away from my mouth 'til the glass was empty.
    Well, that being said...I've never actually HAD a champagne cocktail but I LOVE the taste of champagne. Thanks so much for the recipe.:)
