MORE HOLIDAY MIMOSAS
Pomegranate is a super sweet fruit that always shows up around the holidays. It is perfect for winter cocktails and delicious with other fruits, as seen in our Orange Pomegranate Cocktail.
It also mixes really well with sparkling wine for a delicious and elegant bubbly drink that you can serve at a holiday brunch or party.
Mimosas are always popular Christmas Brunch Cocktails and this pomegranate version is one of the easiest to make.
Not only does it look really festive but it tastes like a cup of holiday cheer too!
If you are looking for a festive and fun drink to serve during the winter, then you can go wrong with this pomegranate and Champagne cocktail.
It is an elegant, classy drink that looks and tastes amazing. Plus, with only 2 ingredients, it is easy to make.
What Is In A Pomegranate Mimosa?
You probably know that a classic mimosa contains sparkling wine and orange juice (1 part of each).
Our Pomegranate Mimosa calls for similar ingredients but I recommend going a bit lighter on the pomegranate juice as it is so tart.
- Champagne or similar sparkling wine
- Pomegranate Juice
- Pomegranate seeds (frozen or fresh)
You don’t need anything else to make this delicious Christmas cocktail. No cocktail shaker or blender is needed which makes it perfect for serving to a crowd.
The only other things you will need to make this holiday cocktail sparkle are champagne flutes or coupes.
I love to use flutes as it is thought that the shape helps the bubbles stay fresh and of course, there is nothing more glamorous than a delicate flute in your hand at a party.
When I’m serving these mimosas at a holiday party, I love using cute little enamel Christmas wine charms on each glass.
That why people can put their drink down and not get confused over whose it is.
Pomegranate Mimosas For A Crowd
While this is a really simple cocktail that is perfect for the holidays, it is not a make-ahead drink that you can prepare in a pitcher like a mojito.
In order to keep the sparkling wine fresh, it is best not to leave it for too long in the glasses before serving to guests.
One solution you can do it to fill a tray with champagne flutes and pour the pomegranate juice into each one.
When you are ready to serve, you can top each flute up with the sparkling wine then garnish.
Pomegranate Mimosa Mocktail
If you want to serve up a non-alcoholic version of the Pomegranate Champagne cocktail then you can substitute the sparkling wine for club soda.
