Pomegranate Ginger Sparklers ~ During the holidays my mother would always make a “special” drink for us kids. It was basically sprite (which was a treat in itself) mixed with rainbow sherbert aka the sugar bomb. I have many fond memories of slurping copious amounts of this down while gaining many pink and orange mustaches over the years. To this day, she will still make this on special occasions, just now it’s for the grandkids and sometimes I will sneak a sip in for old times sake. I think this might be what got me started with craving bubbles in the first place during the holiday time. There’s just something about a glass of sparkly goodness that makes this girl happy. This year, I am making these slightly sweet and tangy Pomegranate Ginger Sparklers –– a not-so-big sugar explosion but still full of flavor. Don’t worry this cocktail is both adult and kid friendly, as I’ve included how to make the non-alcoholic version in the recipe below. This is the officially kick-off to the festivities and cheers to you!

Instructions
  1. Place a small pan over high heat. Add in water, sugar, and ginger and bring to a boil. Continue to boil while stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves and the mixer is reduced by half. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  2. Once cooled, place 1/2 of the pomegranate seeds into the mixture, in a separate bowl if necessary, and mash together until most of the seeds are popped. Strain mixture into a small pouring pitcher.
  3. To assemble drinks. Pour 1-2 ounces of the ginger mix into each serving glass. Slowly add in sparkling wine (or water/sprite if making non-alcoholic version). Leave a little room at the top, sprinkle in a few pomegranate seeds and serve.
