Happy Hour With AP and C: Pomegranate Punch

 
 
I remember coming across this cocktail recipe shortly after having Carter and all I could think was, "how delicious would this taste sitting on my deck after a long day of Mommy'ing." And friends? Let me tell you. It tastes divine. I whipped up a pitcher of Martha's Pom Punch just this week and practically sucked back the entire pitcher all by my lonesome. Needless to say, I don't recommend. Please share. As I'm sure you know by now, I've tweaked the recipe to my liking.
 
What You'll Need:
- 2 cups of Pomegranate juice
- 1 cup Pear nectar
- 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
- 1 bottle of sparkling wine (I used Prosecco).
- {optional} a handful of red raspberries or blueberries
- ice
 
What You'll Do:
- In a pitcher, combine pomegranate juice, pear nectar and Grand Marnier.
- Slowly add 1 bottle of sparkling wine.
- Serve over ice
- Garnish with fresh raspberries or blueberries.
 
Cheer, Loyals!
Have a fabulous weekend...
