This Cranberry Pomegranate Prosecco cocktail is about the quickest cocktail to make in the history of bubbly cocktails. I’m not a fan of having to muddle this and that and then add this and that to make a delicious drink so this one is right up my alley. All you need to do is combine cranberry pomegranate juice and prosecco and drink. Easy as that.
Whenever I make a cocktail that’s easy like this, I like to fancy it up with garnish and/or glassware. Since it’s Christmas time, I am using my husband’s grandmother’s coupe glasses. These coupe glasses are so beautiful and delicate, and I feel so honored to have them.
My husband’s grandparents lived in a pretty old house in Asheville, NC on a large piece of property and I like to think of Oriel playing bridge with her friends and drinking bubbly out of these glasses. I don’t use them that often because I’m terrified of breaking them, but I do bring them out at Christmas for various parties and occasions.
Coupe glasses are making a comeback too which makes me happy. They aren’t ideal for Champagne because they don’t hold the bubbles like a flute, but for bubbly cocktails, they are fabulous. Plus, you just feel fancy drinking out of one.
If you want added flair, garnish this cranberry pomegranate prosecco cocktail with sugar-coated cranberries. Fresh cranberries are in season, and in the grocery stores right now, and I find myself using them for all kinds of garnishes. Get yourself a large toothpick, poke three cranberries on the end and then roll in sugar.
If you liked this cocktail or others, please leave me a comment below. I’d love to hear what’s in your glass this holiday season.
