Pomegranate Lime & Mint Fizz Cocktail

Pomegranate Lime & Mint Fizz Cocktail

Not long until New Years Eve! I hope all of you enjoyed the Holidays and didn’t go crazy with all the last minute Christmas shopping, festive meal planning and overeating. I know I almost did.
The year is coming to an end and I’m sure we’ll all see in the new one with a bang.

I will spend New Years Eve with my boyfriend and friends in the countryside – and lots and lots of bubbles.

Where are you guys going to clink glasses at midnight this NYE? How about a lil’ twist to spice up our fizz this year? 

Most of this Pomegranate Lime & Mint Fizz Cocktail can be prepared at home and easily brought along to the party. Just add the bubbles et voila: a delicious and refreshing NYE cocktail.

The most important ingredient (apart from the sparkling wine) is the pomegranate syrup. Just make it in advance and bring it in a little bottle or jug. Add limes, mint leaves and pomegranate seeds (optional) for garnishing and all your friends will be in for a surprise treat. Have a great New Years Eve. Till next year!

    I think that making the cnhage to something a bit healthier, and cutting down on the number of 2 liters we buy each week would be fantastic Better for the many teenagers who roll through here every day, mine included as well as being better since we wouldn’t be throwing away so much plastic.
