It’s officially December, so now we’re REALLY in the holiday swing, am I right?! Though, who am I kidding, I’ve been in full force for 2 weeks now. Who’s with me?!
Anyways, we’re getting extra festive today with the perfect winter cocktail: Rosemary Pomegranate Prosecco Spritzers. These babies are super simple to whip up and are so versatile. Plus, they’re such an easy drinking cocktail, perfect to share with friends!
So let’s get into it, shall we?
Like all of my favorite cocktails, this drink starts with some good quality gin. Pour a few ounces of gin over ice in a large pitcher and we’re already off to a great start!
Next up comes my favorite seasonal ingredient: pomegranate juice! I just adore all things pomegranate. It adds that beautiful, rich sweetness with just a hint of tang. Once 12 ounces of pomegranate juice are added, now we pour in the good stuff: Prosecco!
Whenever I’m celebrating, Prosecco never fails to make it’s way into my cocktail in some form or another. For this drink, I’m using VOVETI Prosecco, one of my go-to brands. VOVETI is a brut-style DOC with a fresh, graceful profile. It makes for the perfect cocktail addition because of it’s light, yet flavorful taste! Not to mention it’s super reasonably priced!
Once all the ingredients are mixed together, I added in about 1/4 cup of fresh pomegranate seeds and 2 large sprigs of rosemary. The rosemary instantly flavors the drink, adding a lovely warmth to this already tasty cocktail.
Serve up your cocktails in champagne flutes, saucers, or even festive whiskey glasses like I did. I garnished each drink again with more pomegranate seeds (because there can never be enough) and another small sprig of rosemary for good measure.
Now let’s get celebrating! Hope you find some inspiration here as you prepare for your winter parties and events!
