Tips for making this Pomegranate Mimosa
- If you don’t have fresh pomegranates, use store-bought pomegranate juice. Just be sure to look for organic products with no added sugar to keep the cocktail balanced.
- Instead of sparkling wine, you can also use champagne if you’re feeling fancy or prosecco, making for a slightly sweeter drink.
- When assembling the cocktail, add the pomegranate seeds, Lillet liquor and pomegranate juice first and add the champagne as the last step to awaken the bubbles and create a wow-effect when making it in front of guests.
