Tis the season to be jolly….drinks are in order…now in the holiday season cranberries, raspberries, and strawberries are often used get that rich red color. How about shaking it up a little and use a pomegranate?
I recently was at a brunch where champagne was served and heard someone announce “champagne season has officially begun.” Now, I think champagne is always in season but I will admit this is definately the time of year when a great deal is consumed!

1 Cup of Pomegranate Juice
4 1/8 inch slices of Ginger
1 Tablespoon of Sugar
1/4 Cup of Orange Juice (freshly squeezed is my preference)
4 Teaspoons of Triple Sec (or another orange flavored liquor)
Champagne or Sparkling Wine (nothing too extravagant)

To begin, a simple syrup needs to be made, in a saucepan add sugar, ginger, and pomegranate Juice let is simmer till it has reduced to about 1/3 a cup this will take about 5-7 minutes, let is cool completely. In four separate champagne glasses evenly distribute the pomegranate syrup about 2 tablespoons in each glass, mix in 1 tablespoon of orange juice, 1 teaspoon of triple sec and top of with champagne. Stir to make sure it is all well combined and serve!
