spiced cranberry pomegranate sparkler

we're in the thick of it, y'all - the most wonderful time of the year. and i really, truly mean that. people get excited about spring and summer, but i'll never truly understand how these seasons compare to fall and winter. the clothes, the events, the holidays, the food.

to celebrate thanksgiving (which deserves a lot more holiday focus than it gets), susannah of feast & west and meghan of cake 'n knife hold an annual blogsgiving dinner. it's a lot like a virtual potluck; we blogger folk whip up something tasty and share it for blogsgiving.

if you know me, you know i'm all about the cocktails. forget beer. make me something magical with a liqueur i can't pronounce, and you have me. this particular cocktail doesn't have a fancy liqueur, but it does have some delicious flavor medleys going on, plus a little champs for sparkle and festivity.

spiced cranberry pomegranate sparkler

1 cup pomegranate juice
1 stick cinnamon
cranberry juice
champagne or prosecco

first, make your pomegranate-cinnamon syrup. bring pomegranate juice to a boil, add cinnamon stick, and simmer for 10 minutes. remove from heat and let cool completely.

to assemble cocktail, add 1 part pomegranate cinnamon syrup and 2 parts cranberry juice to your cocktail shaker with ice. shake well. pour into champagne saucer glass, then top with champagne. cheers!

thanksgiving is all about friends, family and delicious food. to celebrate the holiday, susannah of feast & west and meghan of cake 'n knife are hosting blogsgiving dinner. over 60 bloggers are sharing recipes this week!
