I originally made this drink for the holidays with cranberries as, of course, cranberry is the fruit of fall and winter but it’s fast become one of my favorites to celebrate birthdays, graduations and it also makes a great fall wedding cocktail.

Pomegranate Spritzer Ingredients
To make this sparkling wine cocktail, you only need 3 ingredients plus an optional garnish.
This sparkling wine cocktail contains the following:
- 1/2 ounce Vodka
- Prosecco or sparkling wine of your choice
- Pomegranate seeds or cranberries
I actually used frozen pomegranate seeds for my drink and when I use cranberries, I typically use dried “Craisins”.
You can definitely make it with fresh cranberries if you prefer.
The only thing with using fresh cranberries is that you will miss the cool up and down trick that you achieve with the dried cranberries as fresh cranberries are a bit too heavy.
If you really want to use fresh cranberries, you can always add them as a garnish before you serve the drink.
What is Prosecco?
Prosecco is a sparkling wine from Italy. You can think of it as the Italian version of Champagne much like Cava is the Spanish version.
You probably already know that only sparkling wine made in the Champagne region of France can be officially called Champagne.
Prosecco and Cava are slightly different as they use different grapes but both these wines are much cheaper than real champagne.
For my drink I used a Prosecco from my favorite Californian Vineyard – Josh Cellars. This Prosecco actually sells out in my city every year and is so delicious, try it and you won’t go back!
What tools do I need to make the Pomegranate Cocktail?
You actually don’t need any tools at all to make this champagne cocktail. All you need a champagne flute.
