Spiced pomegranate champagne punch

We’re kicking off December with our favorite holiday cocktail: spiced pomegranate champagne punch! While punch is great for serving a crowd, I know this year we’ll all be celebrating in smaller numbers so this recipe can easily be halved as needed. Whether you serve it at a family gathering or a cozy night in for two, this festive cocktail will definitely get you in the holiday spirit!

Holiday champagne punch

The boozy base of this pomegranate punch is champagne and spiced rum. I like to use two bottles of champagne and 1.5 cups (350 ml) of spiced rum. Two cups of rum (500 ml) would definitely be acceptable so make sure to adjust to taste! As for the champagne, prosecco or sparkling wine would work just as well. I would just suggest using something on the drier side as the juice will sweeten the punch.

About two cups (500 ml) each of pomegranate juice and orange juice gives this punch the perfect amount of fruity sweetness. Pomegranate juice can be quite tart so you can play with that ratio depending on the flavor you’re looking for. And lastly, I like to squeeze in the juice of one lime to freshen up and balance out the cocktail!

And while it’s not necessary, we like to top off each glass with a splash of of ginger ale. It adds just a bit more spice to the overall cocktail and allows everyone to adjust the booziness to their own preference!

The garnishes!

And no glass of holiday punch is complete without the garnishes! I always add orange slices and cinnamon sticks directly to the pitcher to let them blend with the punch. And with each glass I like to add a sprinkling of pomegranate arils and a sprig of rosemary. The rosemary is optional, but it adds a pop of green to the crimson cocktail and just makes it feel a bit more festive.

To add even more spice to your punch, try adding whole cloves, a bit of ginger or a few pods of star anise to the pitcher. And if you’d like to add more fruit to soak up all that boozy deliciousness, cranberries and apples would make excellent additions!

If you’re looking for more cocktails to try out this holiday season, here are some of our favorites!

Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails

Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails – these pretty, purple-red-hued, sparkling cocktails are perfect for New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day or any festive occasion.

I love the combination of pomegranate liqueur or juice with a sparkling beverage. Last month, I shared my Sparkling Pomegranate Punch which combines pomegranate liqueur or juice with lemon lime soda.

I thought pomegranate liqueur or juice would also go well with champagne and it certainly does, these Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails are so pretty and delicious.

I rimmed the champagne flutes for these Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails with pomegranate sugar, using the same sugar and technique as I did for my Sparkling Pomegranate Punch.

Here is an link for the pomegranate sugar I purchased on You can also find pomegranate sugar at many liquor or party stores.

These festive Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails would be great for a toast at a New Year’s Eve party. They would also be a great addition to a drinks table for a New Year’s Day open house or brunch party.

These pretty purple-red-hued cocktails would also be wonderful for Valentine’s Day or a festive occasion anytime.

This is it. My last post of the year. I want to wish you all a Happy New Years Eve! I will be celebrating the end of 2014 with this Pomegranate Cranberry Champagne Punch.

Now it’s time to celebrate. I love making fun cocktails like my Holiday Pomegranate Mojito and my Red Wine Sangria to ring in the new year.

This punch is fruity, slightly sweet with tons of fizz! Made with a cranberry reduction, fresh mint, pomegranate and cranberry juice. This punch goes down waaaay to easy.

This punch is loaded with the flavors of the season. Fresh cranberries, pomegranate juice and of course champagne!

I choose a dry champagne which paired perfectly in the punch. Not too sweet or fruity.

To make this cocktail simply add cranberries, sugar and water to a saucepan. Bring to a light simmer and cook until cranberries have opened up and the sauce has thickened. Add champagne, both juices and triple sec to a punch bowl. Top with sprigs of mint and lime slices. Serve in a glass or champagne flute.

Did I mention the best part of this drink? It takes only minutes to put together!

You can’t go wrong celebrating New Years Eve with this Champagne punch.

Have a safe and happy New Years Eve! Enjoy!

Dec 28 Pomegranate Champagne Punch

Can you believe its almost 2018?! I certainly can't. And I can't believe I've been blogging for 5 years!

If you've followed along, you probably know that I love champagne cocktails. So for New Year's Eve, I wanted to make a pre-midnight drink for friends, carrying the champagne theme throughout the evening. This boozy champagne punch is mixed with pomegranate juice, mint and lemons, then kicked up a notch with rum! The original recipe calls for a brut champagne but you can also use something more sweet, like my fav, Martini and Rossi - Asti. If you use something on the sweet side, omit the simple syrup noted below.

Sparkling Pomegranate Punch

There&rsquos no better time to break out the punch bowl, and this fizzy, fruity cocktail will help everyone get into the holiday spirit. When it comes to Southern holiday menus, a bubbly punch is just important as the potatoes. That is to say, sparkling, spiked punch is very important. Whether spiked with botanic gin, spicy cider, creamy coffee liqueur, or sweet, sugary milk punch, decadent Christmas cocktails are a necessary part of any Southern holiday menu. And in the South, our punches are just a little bit stronger and a whole lot tastier. This recipe for pomegranate holiday punch features a boozy blend of cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, ginger ale, and homemade simple syrup. Combined, this occasion-worthy punch recipe is the ultimate addition to your holiday bar. Well, once you add the bottle of cold, bubbly prosecco and a hefty serving (2 cups) of vodka. Fruity and refreshing, this punch is sweetened by prosecco and homemade simple syrup, but tangy ginger ale and sharp vodka keep it from being overly sweet. This pomegranate holiday punch is the perfect drink to serve alongside a table full of holiday appetizers. Impress your guests with the punch&rsquos delicious, fruity flavor and picture-perfect presentation. The bright festive punch is dressed up with a homemade ice ring that&rsquos decorated with beautiful pomegranate arils (also known as pomegranate seeds). The homemade ice ring is made in a Bundt pan and frozen for about 4 hours, so make sure you give yourself plenty of preparation time. But be warned: This punch will be gone in half the time it took to make. So make plenty the more the merrier.

These Pomegranate Champagne Punch cocktails are the perfect apéritifs for any occasion! So go ahead and indulge while you patiently wait for the weekend!

Oh my god guys, it’s been a crazy couple of days! I’ve been working non stop prepping for my pop up shop which is coming up on Sunday! I am super excited but also nervous because I have never done this before. However, the exposure would be fantastic, and I have to start somewhere if I want my business to grow amirite??

With all the steps I’m taking to prepare for this pop up shop, the amount of stuff I have to get done is unbelievable! I think it’s even more nerve racking because the day is so close and I still feel like I am so far away from my goal. So to prevent my brain from crashing and burning, I made these pomegranate champagne punch cocktails for my ladies and I. They were delish!

There are two things I love about these punch cocktails. The first thing I appreciate is that they are a Martha Stewart recipe, and I am obsessed with her cocktails and beverages. Seriously guys, she literally can do no wrong! Secondly, these punch cocktails are great for any occasion. You could enjoy these on Valentine’s Day, adult birthday parties or even at brunch with your girlfriends. Or maybe I am looking for a reason to drink these more regularly than I actually should. You can’t blame me though, because they were that good!

I made a few modifications to the original recipe based on the ingredients I had available. I usually keep some basic liquors in my cabinet, but I was lazy to go to the liqueur store to get the Grand Marnier orange liquor. We had a terrible snow storm in Toronto and the temperatures weren’t exactly user friendly. So instead, I took the easier and cheaper way out and used orange juice. Still delicious!

Cheers to all your lovely faces!
