This PINK CHAMPAGNE SANGRIA is utterly perfect for New Years, but also awesome for Valentine’s Day, wedding showers, and every day in between. It’s a great pairing of sweet from the Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato and tart from the Grapefruit juice, with some pomegranate juice tossed in to keep us on our toes. The secret ingredient is an easy Mint Simple Syrup, because we want things to be classy when we celebrate! I’m really proud of this delicious cocktail and I hope it makes your NYE festivities all the more festive! CHAMPAGNE SANGRIA
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped
2 cups ruby red grapefruit juice
1 cup Pomegranate juice
1 bottle Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato
sliced grapefruit, pomegranate arils, and fresh mint for garnish
Heat water, sugar, and chopped mint in a small saucepan over medium/high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes. Set aside.
In a pitcher, combine the mint simple syrup (made in the saucepan above), both juices, and the full bottle of Bubbly Pink Moscato. Stir to combine.
Add ample grapefruit slices and pomegranate arils into the pitcher.
