Rosemary Pomegranate Sparkling Cocktail

Cocktail-1I’m loving this rosemary simple sugar. Marrying it with pomegranate and Prosecco makes for a festive and flavorful cocktail. Combining it all in a pitcher means you get to mingle with your guests at your next party rather than getting stuck behind the bar. :)

RECIPE:

1 cup pomegranate juice, such as Pom Wonderful

¼ cup rosemary simple sugar (recipe below)

1 bottle Prosecco

Ice

Pom seeds and rosemary springs for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

Prepare the rosemary simple sugar: In a small sauce pan, combine 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5-8 minutes until the mixture thickens.  Remove the pan from heat and drop in 2-3 fresh rosemary sprigs.  Allow to sit until the syrup is cooled.  Remove the sprigs and store the syrup in a jar or airtight container in the refrigerator.

Combine pomegranate juice, rosemary simple syrup, Prosecco and ice in a large pitcher.  Stir gently to combine.  Place pomegranate seeds and a sprig of fresh rosemary in each champagne flute.  Fill the flutes with the cocktail and enjoy!
