Pomegranate and Orange Prosecco Cocktail
Prep time: 5 minutes
I was introduced to Prosecco at a friend’s house a few years ago and find it a lighter and more drinkable sparkling wine than Champagne. It’s also great mixed with fresh fruit juice, and here I’ve chosen pomegranate and orange to give it a real zing for a brunch menu. (Of course you can use Champagne if you prefer.)
1 (750ml) bottle Prosecco or Champagne or sparkling white wine
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
¾ cup pomegranate juice
6 champagne flutes
Chill your Prosecco (or Champagne or sparkling wine) and the orange and pomegranate juices.
Pour the Prosecco into six champagne flutes first, filling each one about two-thirds full. Mix the orange and pomegranate juices together in a pitcher and use to top off each glass.
