Sparkling Pomegranate Ginger Prosecco Cocktails are delicious, gorgeous, and sure to impress your guests.
This year I’m all about entertaining. Well, virtual entertaining … mainly because my tiny NYC apartment isn’t ideal for parties. What it is ideal for is cozy date nights.
While we usually like to go out for dinner on the weekends, Steve and I like to spend the occasional Saturday night at home, watching movies, eating good food, and sipping on some delicious drinks.
If you haven’t realized by know, I love a little fizz in my drinks. When it comes to wine, I’m a hugeee fan of bubbly. Some sparkling wines, can be pretty sweet, but I prefer ones that are on the dryer side.
This winter, Steve and I have been sipping on Voveti. It’s a brut style DOC with tempered acidity and a fresh, graceful profile. Voveti is dry, delicious, affordable, and perfect for entertaining [side note: make this drink for brunch next weekend!].
So, Sparkling Pomegranate Ginger Prosecco Cocktail.
A pomegranate ginger syrup brings out the prosecco’s acidity while adding just a touch of sweetness. The pomegranate + ginger combo is my new favorite. It is seriously so flavorful and divine. I like to throw in a few pomegranate seeds for a fun burst of flavor and texture. For the rim, I use candied ginger and sugar. This is totally optional, but highly recommended.
All in all, these Sparkling Pomegranate Ginger Prosecco Cocktails are total winners – an easy drinking cocktail, perfect to share with friends.
Be sure to pick up a bottle of Voveti for your next date night, or brunch!
- 1½ cups sugar
- 1½ cups pomegranate juice
- 2 tbsp fresh ginger, cut into pieces
- 1 bottle dry prosecco, chilled (I used Voveti)
- ½ cup pomegranate seeds
- ½ cup sugar + 2 tbsp chopped candied ginger + 1 lemon wedge, for rim (optional)
- Add sugar, pomegranate juice, and ginger in a small heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to boil, over medium heat, then simmer for 30 minutes, or until mixture gets syrupy and slightly thickens. Remove from heat and let the syrup cool completely.
- To assemble drinks, use a lemon wedge to rim glasses. Dip glasses into sugar and candied ginger.
- Add 2 tablespoons of the pomegranate syrup to each glass. Top with chilled prosecco and a tablespoon of pomegranate seeds.
