An Easy Christmas or New Years Cocktail
My favorite day at Christmas time is decorating the tree, since we make it a special event in our house.
We have treats for the kids and Christmas music playing…I know a lot of people I talk to just put the ornaments on themselves or they don’t want to involve the kids, but we really like doing it.
After the kids go to bed we put the tinsel on the tree and have a few glasses of prosecco…just a few. If you really want to make it a party, break out these Champagne Jello Shots for dessert, too!
This year I created this champagne drink recipe using pomegranate liquor, pomegranate seeds and cointreau to kick up the fruit flavor and to make this holiday cocktail more special.
Here’s a tip for the pomegranate seeds – I know that now you can buy the pomegranate seeds in a container already done for you, but they are really expensive.
Also they add a preservative that sometimes just doesn’t taste great.
So I buy the whole pomegranates, cut them in half and bang them with a wooden spoon over a large bowl. If you put a paper towel down in the bowl first it’ll help keep the juice from going all over.
We like a good amount of pomegranate seeds at the bottom, so add as much or as little as you like. Remember when you’re done drinking you can eat up the seeds for a snack!
Our boys are obsessed with pomegranate seeds, they would eat them all year if we let them – or could get them at the store.
These Prosecco Holiday Pom Pom champagne cocktails are festive, fun and perfect for any holiday party! Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Years Day.

Can You Make These Champagne Cocktails Ahead Of Time?
You totally can! Grab a pitcher, triple the recipe and add the liquor to the bottom of each champagne glass along with a tablespoon or so of the pomegranate seeds.
Come party time just top with champagne and serve!
