I hear you – you never know what champagne to purchase or which one will taste best with your cocktail ingredients. I’ve got you covered in my new digital cookbook, Holiday Sips. You can learn all about it and pick up a copy for yourself right here! Some have called it “a super small investment into eliminating party stress”! (I couldn’t agree more). First, let’s talk about pomegranates.
What is a pomegranate and how do I get those seeds out?
A pomegranate is a fruit that was originally grown in the Middle East regions, but today they are even grown right in Arizona & some parts of California! You can read more about Pomegranates in this article. The seeds are the gold in this berry type fruit, which can be easily removed by tapping the back of a halved pomegranate with a wooden spoon. There are so many different ways that people remove the seeds – personally, I believe this to be the easiest.
What type of champagne do I use?
Be sure to use a drier champagne because the pomegranate juice is usually sweetened. If you decide to go with an unsweetened juice use a Prosecco.
How to serve a mimosa:
Champagne flutes are all you need to serve up this festive holiday cocktail, and they don’t need to be expensive ones! These rosemary pomegranate mimosas look beautiful adorned with a fresh sprig of rosemary and even pomegranate seeds should you decide to add them.
- Make-ahead: You can make this cocktail in batches ahead of your guests arriving. Don’t make them more than a few minutes before the guests arrive, however; because you don’t want to risk them going flat.
- Prep-ahead: Add your juice, a rosemary sprig, and some pomegranate seeds to the glasses placed on a platter. After guests arrive, pop open the champagne, add it to the glasses and serve! Doing it this way allows you be prepared, yet involve your guests in the process.
These cocktails are not limited to brunch!
Rosemary Pomegranate Mimosas make a fantastic addition to your holiday or Christmas brunch! However; don’t limit yourself because of the word mimosa! These cocktails can be served at any time of day!
