Pomegranate and Pear Champagne Cocktail

Happy New Year’s Eve! To celebrate, I’ve invited a few of my closest friends over for drinks followed by a night on the town. Contributing to the evening’s excitement is the fact that I’ll get to play hostess AND tour guide, as the majority of my friends haven’t yet seen my new apartment. With this in mind, I figured nothing would say “welcome / pce out 2016” quite like a great seasonal, sparkling cocktail upon arrival. To make these delicious pomegranate and pear champagne mixed drinks, I followed Hot for Food’s simple recipe. Check out their page to view a really cute instructional video and scroll down to see how my first batch came out.
