Pomegranate seeds and a little bubbly make this a festive option for entertaining. To make an extra-special garnish, add a few pomegranate seeds to each well of an ice cube tray and top them up with water. Freeze and then serve alongside the sparklers.

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 15 minutes
  • Portion size 2 servings


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 piece (2 inches/5cm) ginger peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice chilled
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • dash bitters
  • 1 1/4 cup sparkling wine chilled
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 piece ginger halved


In saucepan, bring sugar, ginger and 1/2 cup water to boil, stirring often. Remove from heat; let cool for 20 minutes. Strain syrup through fine-mesh sieve; discard ginger. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 month.)

In bowl, stir together pomegranate juice, lemon juice, bitters and 3 tbsp of the syrup; reserve remaining syrup for another use. Divide pomegranate juice mixture among two champagne glasses; pour in sparkling wine. Add pomegranate seeds; garnish glasses with candied ginger. Serve immediately.
