Ah, Friday. How do I love thee? Making this cocktail for this ‘Freixenet Friday’ post really happy. As I layered the drink in the flute the dark ruby hue changed to a light vibrant pink cheering me up from a dreary week in Boston. My mood changed like the color changing as I finished my cocktail.
I picked the Pom Vivant cocktail on the Freixenet website from their cocktail recipe options. The cocktail features pomegranate juice, which of course is available year round, but the fruit is in season from September through February. I love when I can enjoy something that goes with the season.
Their Pom Vivant recipe makes 6 cocktails with an entire bottle. While Price and I can easily split a bottle, or I can have it all myself, I decided to scale the recipe down to make 1 drink.
The Pom Vivant
makes 1 cocktail
- 2 oz unsweetened pomegranate juice
- 1 teaspoon simple syrup
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
- 1 bottle (750ml) Freixenet Cordon Negro Extra Dry
- Orange zest (optional)
- Layer the pomegranate juice, simple syrup and orange juice in a flute glass.
- Fill the rest of the champagne flute with Freixenet.
- Add orange zest, to garnish.
