If you’re looking for a few new Halloween-inspired cocktail recipes, you might want to stick around. The Ideal Wine Company explains how to make Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails.
Ready for Halloween
You may grow up, but you never grow out of Halloween. This is the one day of the year where you can forget that you’re an adult, dive into the dressing up box and embrace everything spooky. If you want to celebrate the holiday in style, you need to find a way to turn the mundane into the mysterious.
Take the average Champagne cocktail for example. If you use the awesome power of the pomegranate, you can transform this heavenly tipple into a blood-red concoction that’ll help you get into the spirit of All Hallows Eve. So how do you make a Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail?
What you need
It’s actually pretty easy to make a Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail, and you won’t need much to do it either. If you want to make enough to serve one person, you’ll need an ounce (two tablespoons) of pomegranate juice, three ounces (six tablespoons) of chilled Champagne, and a teaspoon of pomegranate seeds for decoration.
You should also make sure you have a Champagne flute to hand. As the Ideal Wine Company has previously explained, the shape of a wine glass really does matter. If you serve Champagne in a flute the tipple will truly shine, but if you serve it in a glass with a wider brim it’ll fall flatter than a pancake.
How to make them
You should start by pouring the pomegranate juice (cranberry juice makes a good substitute if you don’t have any pomegranate to hand) into the flute. Then you need to slowly pour the Champagne into the glass and lightly stir. Finally you should drop the pomegranate seeds into the mixture, to add that scary touch you need to transform this drink into the perfect cocktail for Halloween.
It’s important to note that the better the Champagne, the better the end cocktail will taste. If you buy the Louis Roederer Cristal 2000 from the Ideal Wine Company, which you can secure today for only £180, you’ll have the luxury vintage you need to create a stunning blood-red cocktail for All Hallows Eve!
