Calling all prosecco fans! Kick the holiday season off in style with a Pomegranate Prosecco Cocktail!
The holidays are approaching and that means it’s time to break out the bubbles. Prosecco is lighter than champagne and is delicious on its own but really adds some depth when it is mixed in a cocktail. And this Pomegranate Prosecco Cocktail is the perfect example. The slightly sweet prosecco is a great match for the tart pomegranate juice. It’s smooth and delicious and before you know it, your glass is empty.
Be warned. There is more to this cocktail than meets the eye. It’s not just your typical juice and prosecco combination. It has some rum and a splash of simple syrup, which means it’s versatile and can easily be a happy hour cocktail as well. But it also makes it stronger. And it can sneak up on you. So be sure to serve some snacks with it.
What is the difference between Prosecco and Champagne?
Prosecco is Italy’s version of Champagne. We love to use Prosecco in our sparkling cocktails for a few reasons:
- It’s typically less expensive than Champagne making it more cost-effective when you need to buy several bottles of sparkling wine for your guests.
- Prosecco often has a lighter, fruitier flavor than Champagne and easily mixes with ingredients like fruit juices and other liquors.
