Enjoy a Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail and Mocktail!

The holiday season may elicit thoughts of cranberry everything, but that isn’t the only reddish fruit out there. I also love pomegranate. (The pomegranate mimosa my local bar and grill used to make is still my favorite!) So why not try it as a holiday cocktail and mocktail? Sparkling water gives you the fancy and festive fizz of champagne. Serve in decorative holiday-themed glasses for even more seasonal cheer! Want to keep it non-alcoholic? All you have to do is leave out the vodka. Your whole family will enjoy it before or during dinner!
