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.

  • 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

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.
