Winter Cocktail Perfection

Dec 18, 2013

I’ve been on this kick recently that involves me attempting to branch out from my standby Old Fashioned. I have always been intrigued by Gin. Disclaimer: I think most of it has to do with how pretty the Hendricks bottle is. I’m a sucker for great packaging. Regardless, being clueless in the area of mixology, I asked Neal to help me brainstorm a crowd-pleasing Gin cocktail that would be perfect for a holiday occasion. Here it goes:

Champagne cocktail with Gin & Pomegranate: 

  • 1 shot of gin, each 
  • A handful of Pomegranate seeds, for color
  • Pomegranate Grenadine Syrup
  • Champagne or Prosecco 





Start off with your favorite champagne flutes (My favorite heart shaped ones featured here were actually thrifted). Pour 1 shot of Gin in each glass. Top off with Champagne or Prosecco. Add a dash of syrup to your liking (I like mine extra sweet). Finish with a handful of Pomegranate seeds.

Drink up!

P.S. yes. That was probably the easiest cocktail you’ve ever made.
