The Best Christmas Spirit

Every year my friend Ellen and I co-host an ornament swap---it's the highlight of my year.

This year Ellen made a delicious cocktail that was so tasty I have to pass it along.

Pomegranate - Champagne Punch

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
(2) 750 ml bottles chilled brut Champagne
1 1/2 cup white rum
1 1/4 Pomegranate juice
1 large lemon sliced
Pomegranate seeds (slice one pomegranate in half and gently remove the seeds over the punch.)
Fresh mint leaves
1 ice block

Bring half cup water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer 5 minutes. Cool completely.

Combine Champagne, rum, and pomegranate juice in punch bowl (Ellen just used a pitcher and it worked fine). Add enough syrup to sweeten to taste. Mix in lemon slices, pomegranate seeds, and mint leaves.


This is like the best Christmas punch ever! I highly recommend it!

See you on Monday!

  1. Grace! I'm so glad you liked it...and celebrating Christmas and friendship is a perfect occasion to break this thank you for the opportunity, friend! xoxoxo

  2. And..I like your title for this post Christmas Spirit...which is what I think the drink should be called now...Christmas Spirits because I used Cava and prosecco could also be used I was trying to think of a name for it that didn't pin point the alcohol specifically. Leave it up to the crafty artist to nail a name! Rock on...count down to next year's swap has begun.
