Fall is my favorite season – I love the weather, the decor, the holidays – everything.  And even one of my favorite fruits, pomegranates, comes into season during the fall.  In celebration of the pomegranate, but also wanting to hold on to hold onto summer a little bit longer, I have come up with this cocktail, which is great for brunch or happy hour – cheers!

Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail

  • 1 Lipton Pomegranate-Blackberry Tea Bag (other companies have pomegranate tea too)
  • 4 Blackberries
  • Pomegranate Seeds – see my trick below on how best to eat the fruit!
  • Pomegranate juice
  • Your favorite champagne, or sparkling white wine (use cider to make this a family friendly drink)
  1. Seep your tea bag in a small amount of hot water, allowing for a strong brew.
  2. Add equal parts champagne and pomegranate juice, add some of the tea, and blackberries and pomegranate seeds for garnish – enjoy!
How to get seeds out of a pomegranate:
  1. Cut the top off of the fruit, so that you can see (in a c-section view) the different sections inside the fruit, separated by the white membrane.
  2. Have your knife follow the membrane down, around the fruit, so that you are left with the 3-5 main sections.
  3. The fruit by the rind, with the seeds facing down, over a bowl, hit the rind with a wooden spoon, watch as the seeds easily fall out.
