Pomegranate-Champagne Punch

0 Posted by - February 15, 2012 - Food & Drink

You might be starting to think that all I do is drink and eat dessert. You would be mostly right. But why break tradition now? I saw this drink on Pinterest and just had to give it a try.

Martha Stewart is rarely wrong. Hell, she even knows all the best stocks to trade… Wait… I’m confusing myself. Anyways… I had high hopes for this one because it has Martha’s name on it.

I wasn’t so convinced, however, that I was willing to sacrifice an entire bottle of Champagne just to test it– even if it was cheapass Korbel. So I mixed a hinky version in a Champagne flute. I might have gotten some of the proportions close to right. Also, I didn’t have pear nectar (who the fuck has pear nectar?) so I used some leftover apple juice I bought for when my nieces came to visit.

The result was (sigh, predictably) less than great, I suspect mostly because of me, not Martha Stewart. But then, I’m pretty sure Martha Stewart has some crafty DIY way to distill her pee into something that tastes better than anything I could make, so there’s that. Anyways, my pomegranate punch was too sweet and kinda reminded me of bug puke. I don’t know why. Bug puke is just what popped into my head at the moment of tasting.

    You need to get the recipe from Sabrina on her yummy punch. Champagne, Pomegranate mixer, and Mango Vodka.

    the short cut to this is just buy “PAMA” and add it to champagne…to taste…

    Ocean Spray Cranberry Pomegrant juice mixed with the champagne, and then slice up some limes and toss them in. Delicious.
