“Healthy pomegranate juice gives its pink color to an elegant blended cocktail that's just right for summer parties.”

Ingredients

    • ⅔ cup pomegranate juice or cranberry juice, chilled
    • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 3 cups ice cubes
    • ½ cup vodka
    • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh mint or rosemary
    • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle Prosecco or other sparkling wine, chilled
    • 12 lemon slices or fresh raspberries and small fresh mint leaves

Directions

  • 1 In a liquid measuring cup, combine pomegranate juice, lemon juice, and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves.
  • 2 In a blender, combine juice mixture, the ice cubes, vodka, and snipped mint. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour ¼ cup of the blended mixture into each of 12 glasses. Top each with ¼ cup of the Prosecco. Garnish with lemon slices or raspberries and mint leaves.
