Here’s a ruby red (er, pomegranate red) drink to dress up your Valentine’s Day party or date night!
I’ve never met a St-Germain cocktail that I didn’t like. It’s a liqueur commonly mixed with champagne, gin and/or citrus, so, really, what’s not to like? We recently made this lovely pomegranate spin on the classic St-Germain cocktail and loved it. (I recommend making a pitcher.)
Seeding the pomegranate takes a bit of work (and mess), but it can be done ahead of time. The seeds even freeze well! It’s the end of pomegranate season in the US, but the whole fruit will also keep for a few weeks in the fridge… so get ’em while they’re good!
This is what your ingredients will look like after making a few drinks. Oops.
For one drink:
2 oz. Champagne
2 oz. Pomegranate Juice
1.5 oz. St-Germain
Pour liquids into a glass and sprinkle a few pomegranate seeds on top. (The seeds sink at first, but most of them will float to the top eventually!)
