pomegranate and clementine cocktail
- 1 1/2 cup clementine juice, divided (about 18 small clementines)
- 1/2 cup Pom juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- Pour ½ cup of the clementine juice, the Pom juice and 1/4 cup of the sugar into a saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, then turn down heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until mixture is reduced by almost half. Remove the pomegranate sauce from the heat and set aside to cool.
- Place pomegranate seeds and 1 Tbsp of the sugar into a cocktail shaker and muddle until the seeds are mashed and mixed with the sugar. Then stir in 1 cup of the clementine juice and lemon juice, and set aside.
- Grab your cocktail glasses and pour the cooled pomegranate syrup into the bottom of the glasses. Add ice to each glass, about 1/4 of the way full, then pour in clementine mixture and top with champagne. Cheers!
