Though very simple, this cocktail offers a festive color and bright taste should you want to enliven your champagne. Pomegranate juice is available in most natural foods stores.
1 part pomegranate juice
3 parts dry champagne or sparkling wine
Dash of Campari
Pomegranate seeds, for garnish (optional)
Mix together first three ingredients and pour into chilled champagne flutes or martini glasses. Optional: Float pomegranate seeds on top.
[Chef’s Note: If you are unable to find good-quality champagnes locally, this can be an option for enlivening a not-so-wonderful bottle.]
