Holidays are a great time for festive cocktails like this one.  Pomegranate seeds make a colorful and edible garnish that dance to the top of each glass.

For a non-alcoholic version, use mineral water (plain or lemon-flavored) instead of champagne.  Or, use straight sparkling pomegranate juice garnished with pomegranate seeds.  It’s a great option for kids — now they can have their own drinks that look just like the adult version!  To make things even easier, Trader Joe’s sells pomegranate seeds pre-shelled and ready to go – no need to struggle with the whole fruit.
