Sometimes the best nights are the unexpected visits from a good friend that include quality catch up time and unplanned hours of drinking a fun new cocktail. When I know that I am going to be spending a weekend by my lonesome because Mr. Dr. is being a slave to the hospital, it’s the little surprises that get me excited. It would be fantastic if one of those surprises was Mr. Dr. calling to say that he got off 10 hours early and was on his way home…but since that has never happened I won’t hold my breath. A call from a friend saying she was coming over for Saturday happy hour with a new cocktail recipe was the second best surprise call I could have gotten. I’m so lucky that my friends always come to the rescue when I need it. Even if they don’t know that I was craving a good old fashioned vent-filled session, and that it was just what the doctor ordered to cheer me up on a potentially lonely weekend.
So now for the fun part. We made a delicious new cocktail that I of course had to share with you all. The holidays are a fun time to experiment with sparkling drinks so that’s exactly what we did.
Meet the Pomegranate Prosecco Cocktail
-Generous Amount of Prosecco
-Generous Amount of Vodka
-3 Splashes of Pomegranate Juice
-Notes: This cocktail is such a treat. The addition of Pomegranate Juice keeps it crisp, not too sweet yet adds a touch of fruit flavor. It really is a nice twist because sometimes Prosecco can be a bit sweet on it’s own. The vodka element keeps this cocktail honest and really what is better than vodka with a touch of sparkle and a dash of fruit? Right. Nothing. Just looking at the above photo makes me thirsty. The beauty of this simple recipe is that you can substitute with any juice of your choice.
Happy Cocktail Friday!
