I hope that everyone overindulged a bit yesterday and had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with food, friends, and family. I’m sure today the last thing on anyone’s mind is food though, so I thought I would offer up this light and aromatic Rosemary and Pomegranate Fizz cocktail recipe instead!

I often cook with what I’m drinking, but every now and then my dishes inspire a cocktail instead. Using some of the prominent flavors from our Friendsgiving feast last Sunday, I put together a festive and blushing cocktail that you’ll be sipping all through the holidays! The aromatic rosemary, sweetness of the pomegranate, and tingly bubbles from the champagne make this a crowd pleasing favorite!

Tattooed Martha - Rosemary Pomegranate Fizz (1)

(makes 2 cocktails)

Ingredients:

2 oz pomegranate juice

1 oz rosemary simple syrup (recipe follows)

1 oz vodka (you can also use gin or white rum)

Dry champagne (white or pink)

Pomegranate seeds and rosemary sprigs for garnish

Rosemary Simple Syrup:

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup water

1 sprig of fresh rosemary

Combine sugar, water, and rosemary in a small saucepan over medium to high heat. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Let rosemary sprig steep for 5 minutes before removing and discarding. Place mixture in the refrigerator to cool for 10-15 minutes.

When ready to make your cocktails, divide pomegranate juice, rosemary simple syrup, and vodka between two champagne flutes. Top with champagne, garnish, and serve!
