A Whole New World Cocktail

A delightful pomegranate champagne cocktail

This is such a drinkable cocktail! I came up with this for Disney Dinners: Aladdin and was so pleased my guests’ reaction. It’s such a pretty drink with pomegranate arils bouncing around from the champagne bubbles and it’s actually fairly good for you! Pomegranate juice, lime juice, and ginger are all great for your body and champagne is great for the soul. (In my opinion anyway!)

This would make a marvelous holiday cocktail. Make the ginger simple syrup ahead of time. It will be good in the fridge for weeks. If you’ve never bought fresh ginger, don’t be afraid. Get the scary knobs at the grocery store, use the edge of a spoon to peel it, and slice it into pieces. Toss in simple syrup and let steep for thirty minutes. Keep it in a jar all holiday season!
