If cottage life has taught me anything it is that mamosas are a good way to start the day off right. They help get the cobwebs out from the night before and let you ease back into the day of lying on the dock. My good friends have been kind enough to invite us to their cottage over the summer and we are always impressed when we seem to polish off a few magnums of champagne and oj.
Over the December holidays I decided to try a lighter version of the traditional mamosa (oj and champagne). Using pomegranate juice was so much lighter and had a great flavor. This is a nice elegant drink to serve, much more than say cottage pint glasses of champagne and oj.
Add a few pomegranate seeds to a flute of champagne
add 1/2 champagne
add splash of more of pomegranate juice (as desired)
