The Santa-secco

The Santa-secco

The twelve cocktails of Christmas
#1: The Santa-secco

A ruby-bright, festive mix of prosecco, pomegranate juice and fresh pomegranate seeds. I love the way the bubbles cause the seeds to float to the top instead of languishing at the bottom of the glass, the way fruit usually does in a mixed drink.

The girls’ version – made with gingerale instead of prosecco – was also surprisingly delicious.

  • prosecco
  • 100% pomegranate juice (such as Pom)
  • pomegranate seeds
  1. Add a small spoonful of pomegranate seeds to the bottom of a champagne flute.
  2. Pour in enough pomegranate juice to cover the seeds.
  3. Fill the remainder of the glass with prosecco.

    I can personally vouch for the tastiness of this festive cocktail.

    Ooooh I`ve already got the pomegranate seeds…. (and tidbit that may or may not be of interest… French word is Pomme grenade — so apple grenade 🙂 ) Enjoy the explosion!

      Thanks so much for sharing that – I’d never thought of it before!
