Pomegranate champagne cocktail: Coctel de champaña y granada by Karen Hursh Graber © 2010

When we lived in Oaxaca, we had neighbors with a pomegranate tree that seemed to bear fruit much longer than in other places. In Puebla, the pomegranate season is late summer, after which pomegranates disappear until December, when California imports are sold in the supermarkets, as they are north of the border. Bottled pomegranate juice is now available in most major Mexican supermarkets.


  • 2 750-mililiter bottles of champagne, chilled
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice, chilled
  • ¼ cup Triple Sec

Pour all ingredients into a pitcher. Serve in champagne flutes, garnish with pomegranate seeds if available. Makes 10 servings.
