Toast the Holidays With a Pomegranate Spritzer

Toast the Holidays With a Pomegranate Spritzer

Yield

Serves 8 (serving size: 3/4 cup)

This is a wonderfully festive beverage to open a dinner party: Sweet-tart pomegranate juice is balanced by bitters and spiked with vodka and fizzy rosé. Find pomegranate arils in the refrigerated area of the supermarket produce section; they’ll save you at least 10 minutes because you won’t need to pull the arils from a whole pomegranate.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz.) chilled vodka
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Angostura bitters
  • 5 cups (40 oz.) chilled sparkling rosé wine
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate arils
