I am looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year, but that wasn’t always the case! One year my friends and I threw a party for ourselves. Mainly we just watched “The Devil Wears Prada” (it had just come out on DVD), ate desserts and drank wine. Another year we threw a red-themed party after Valentine’s Day. We served all kinds of red appetizers, fresh pomegranates and red cocktails. I love the idea of themed cocktails.
This year I am planning on making:
- 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
- 1 cup pear nectar
- 1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
- 1 bottle (750 ml) Champagne
In a large pitcher, combine pomegranate juice, pear nectar, and orange-flavored liqueur. Slowly add Champagne. Serve over ice. This recipe was found in Martha Stewart Living.
