Serves 6

2 1/2 cups Vodka

2 1/2 cups Pomegranate juice

2 1/2 cups Cranberry juice

1/2 cup Triple Sec

Brut Rose Sparkling Wine


1 cup Brown Sugar

1 cup Cranberry juice

White or Red Sparkling Sugar for rimming the glasses

Do Ahead:  Prepare a syrup by combining one cup of brown sugar and one cup of cranberry juice. Simmer until the brown sugar has melted and the mixture becomes a thin syrup.  Cool to room temperature.  Do not refrigerate.  

In a large pitcher combine the vodka, pomegranate juice and the cranberry juice.  Stir.  Next add the Triple Sec and about 1/4 cup of the brown sugar syrup.  Stir again.

In a small flat-bottomed dish, pour the sugar for rimming the glasses.  In a second flat-bottomed dish, pour some cranberry juice.  Dip the rim of your glass in the juice and then the sugar.  

Place a few ice cubes in the glass and pour in the drink mixture.  Add a splash of bubbly and it is time to celebrate!  


Note:  The original recipe calls for a bit of Peach Bitters.  We didn't have so it was omitted.  We also adjusted the amount of Triple Sec to meet our taste.
