There’s no need to get complicated to create a refreshing, mouthwatering mixed drink; sometimes simple is best, like this Pomegranate and Prosecco Spritzer. Two ingredients and you’re done, leaving you more time for socializing instead of drink mixing.
Pomegranates peak in winter, so you should be able to find them in the produce section of your local supermarket. But if pomegranates aren’t your thing, you can use cranberry juice as a sweet, yet tart substitution. Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine that’s lighter and slightly sweeter than champagne, and the perfect complement to fruit juices.
Toss in a sprinkling of fresh pomegranate seeds and you’ve got a festive, Instagram-ready cocktail. If you’re feeling extra fancy, freeze a tray of mixed berry ice cubes and garnish with a few fresh cranberries for even more flavor and flair.
