Happy New Year from Felicia!
New Year’s Eve: a time for reflection, a time for resolutions, a time to drink. Felicia lives in the moment so reflection is not her forte. Yep, last year was great. There. Done reflecting. Regarding resolutions, Felicia never makes them because they usually lead to disappointments. Do you really want to eat less cookies, find a therapist, or go to the gym daily? Felicia didn’t think so. Now booze…that is how Felicia celebrates the new year. Here is the perfect champagne cocktail to add some bubbles to your mood and some years to your life. Lovers of the pomegranate claim that this superfruit can prevent heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes and tooth decay, among other illnesses. Add it to some champagne with a touch of bourbon and you have a veritable fountain of youth. Why not make the resolution this year to live life to the fullest? Happy New Year from Felicia!
Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail for Two
6 oz brut champagne or sparkling wine
½ oz Knob Creek bourbon
1/8 ounce sweetened lime juice (Don't use Rose's! Click here for our own sweet lime juice recipe)
2 champagne glasses
Pour ¼ ounce of bourbon and a dash of sweet lime juice into each glass. Cut pomegranate into eighths. Remove the seeds from one eighth and divide them between the two glasses. Remove the seeds from another eighth and smash them with the back of a spoon before dividing them between the two glasses. Pour 3 ounces of champagne into each glass. Toast, drink, stay healthy!
