I have never posted a drink recipe on here before, but let's see how it goes. My blog is officially one-year old now, so I think she can handle it!
This is the drink, along with mimosas for people who don't like pomegranate juice, that was served at Mother's Day brunch. I first had one of these right after I turned 21 and Zanzibar restaurant was still open in Ann Arbor. Whenever Kirk, a good friend a past co-worker at the Bivouac, or I needed a sub we would "sponsor a field trip to Zanzibar." He would always order a mint julep and I an eye opener. I love the tart taste of pomegranate mixing with the dry champagne while the sweetness of sugar just lightly pierced through. While we didn't serve the drink over a sugar cube (last minute we realized we didn't have any) the drink is still amazing. Another thing to note: Zanzibar served this on the rocks while we served it neat. Either is good, it's just a preference thing.
- 3 oz. dry champagne
- 1 oz. 100% pomegranate juice
- 1 sugar cube (optional)
- A few whole ice cubes (Optional)
