Pomegranate Champagne

Happy New Year’s Eve!!!

Mmmm, I love this time of year — such a special time to pause and reflect on all of the memories, joys, laughs, challenges, and lessons learned from ’09.  And then to take a deep breath, and find rest, hope, and lots of joy in the promise of newness to come in ’09.  :)

And of course…it can’t be New Year’s Eve without some delicious fizzy drinks!  Whether you opt for champagne or the non-alcoholic alternatives (any kinds of sparkling juices!), this pomegranate version is one of my new favorites!  Not only does it taste fantastic, but the little pomegranate jewels are the perfect size for champagne flutes.  Charming!!!

Wish you all a celebration tonight filled with great joy, great laughter, and of course…the great people you love.  Cheers to 2010!!!

Ali’s Tip:

Other fun alternatives would be to make cranberry champagne (using cranberry juice and frozen or fresh cranberries), christmas champagne (cranberry + lime), or to sub in any other favorite fruits and their juices.  You could also always add fruits and a small dallop of a favorite sorbet (lime, pineapple, raspberry, etc.).  The options are endless!
