I love this time of year. I have since I was a child. There is something just so exciting about the fall and winter seasons. The weather is cooler, the days are shorter, and I’m giving myself more and more excuses to stay inside, and sit by the fire reading a book!
If there is one thing I love about the holiday season though, it’s entertaining!
There is something magical about having a group of people around for a holiday party. Music playing, fire going, wine or cocktails rolling, and sitting down together to celebrate your favorite food at the dinner table.
Entertaining during the holiday seasons doesn’t have to be stressful. I believe you just need some simple, fool-proof recipes that you’ve tried and tested to make a successful holiday gathering, as well as a simple and festive go-to cocktail! These Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails are my go-to entertaining drink of choice this year and I’m sure you and your guests will love them too.
Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails with Rosemary
Honestly, these pomegranate rosemary sparkling cocktails are so easy to whip up and they give off the perfect festive vibe! I wanted to make something that was simple, but highlighted some of my favorite things about the season; in particular, the colors red and green!
These sparkling cocktails also incorporate some of my favorite ingredients; pomegranate (aka the most festive fruit ever in my eyes), rosemary, gin, white rum, and a good pouring of Prosecco!
The base of these cocktails is a combination of white rum and gin, topped with sparkling pomegranate juice, and a beautifully-subtle rosemary simple syrup just to lend an extra sweetness to the tartness of the pomegranates. Topped with Prosecco, these cocktails are easily adaptable to suit your party’s needs, whether that be non-alcoholic, or increased quantities to feed a crowd!
Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, a wedding, a birthday, or just want an excuse to have people around, these pomegranate rosemary sparkling cocktails should definitely be on your menu. Cheers!
