With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Pomegranate Champagne Toast for New Year's Eve

Pomegranate Champagne Toast for New Year's Eve

Pomegranate Champagne
Recipe courtesy of Katie Lee The Early Show


INGREDIENTS:
1 ounce pomegranate juice
Champagne
Pomegranate seeds for garnish

METHOD:
Pour 1 ounce of the pomegranate juice into a champagne flute (I used wine glasses). Top with champagne and a few pomegranate seeds for garnish.
For a non-alcoholic version, I substituted a light color soda like Ginger-ale or 7-Up for a festive and refreshing beverage.
Following a recipe for Emeril's Pomegranate Vinaigrette, my little kitchen helper, Ella and I made a colorful salad using pomegranate juice and arils.






Thank you to the folks at Pom Wonderful for sending me this product.  Though not requested, I had fun incorporating Pomegranate juice into several recipes and liked the results.

Hello LDH: If I had a glass of that right now, I'd give you a toast for 2011! Your photos are great, as usual! And your little helper is much more adorable than Paula Deen or Rachel Ray (although I love both of them, too). Susan

What a cute little helper! How great she could help with those pomegranates! Removing those arials takes forever! Beautiful drink and salad.

Even though New Year's has past I look forward to trying your Pomegranate Champagne recipe.

I would go for the non alcoholic version since I'm not a drinker and the one time I tried champagne I didn't like it.
The salad looks delicious.
