Tuesday's Tastings, Part II

And there you were thinking I would forget! No way would I let you guys down after how nice you've been to me the past few days with all the sweet comments. So we're back for the second edition of Tuesday's Tastings, and today I'd like to switch gears and focus on what is perhaps my most favorite cocktail - to drink or to serve. Whether or not you like to have your drinks with some kick or play it safe with a virgin alternative (like my disciplined friends who are giving up alcohol for Lent), this little concoction can be made either way. Photos and recipes courtesy of Hostess with the Mostess, my go-to site for all things pertaining to entertaining. Once you feast your eyes on this lovely libation, I'm sure you'll find a reason to celebrate.

Sparkling Pomegranate Champagne

• 1 oz chilled pomegranate juice
• 4 ounces chilled champagne

Pour the pomegranate juice into a champagne flute and top with champagne. Enjoy!


Sparkling Pom-Apple Mocktail

• 1 ounce chilled pomegranate juice
• 4 ounces Sparkling Apple-Pomegranate Cider* (chilled)
• mint leaf for garnish (optional)

Pour the pomegranate juice into a champagne flute and top with flavored cider. Garnish with a mint leaf.

*If you can’t find Apple-Pom cider, substitute with Apple-Cranberry or Apple-Raspberry instead.

P.S. I think this is the perfect cocktail to accompany a bridal or baby shower. It lends itself perfectly to a theme of reds, whites and pinks, such as the one featured here, don't you think? Tres chic!

So there you have it - my go-to cocktail that looks pretty and tastes pretty every time. Cheers!

I'm heading to Chicago for work tomorrow, so I hope to have an update on the new set of wheels by the weekend. Taking the Maxima for a test drive tonight!
