Toast With This!: Pomegranate, Mint & Ginger Fizz

The holidays are just about here--and I couldn't be more excited!  I'm looking forward to reuniting with family and close friends, eating well and creating new memories.  When coming together, I recommend having a signature drink to toast the occasion--and to keep "bar" duty to a minimum.  It's another one of my go-to entertaining tips that makes things lighter, easier--and always festive.

Inspired by flavors that sing of the holidays (pomegranate, citrus, mint and ginger), I fell for this jazzy 'mocktail' recipe--adapted from Martha Stewart--for a beautiful, elegant--and yes, quite delicious, sip.  Add it to your repertoire and you'll be toasting throughout the holidays--and beyond!

Happy Sipping!

Pomegranate, Mint & Ginger Fizz

10 mint leaves, plus extra for garnish
1 teaspoon sugar
Juice of 1 orange, about 1/4 cup
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
Ginger ale

In a tall glass, muddle mint leaves and sugar together until the leaves are fully coated and a paste almost forms. Add in orange and pomegranate juices and top off with chilled ginger ale.  Stir slightly to mix, pour into serving glasses and garnish with fresh mint.  Sip and enjoy!
