I'm a big fan of funky little cocktails, and I found myself in need of a recipe for one at a recent dinner party. The party had a Greek theme, and as I don't particularly care for ouzo (yuck), didn't want to serve beer, and was generally disinterested in a number of other Greek drink options, I decided to make up a specialty cocktail. Thus, Persephone's Kiss was born. There's nothing about this that is actually Greek, but I squeaked by because of the pomegranate. When in trouble always look to myths and folklore!
1 oz pomegranate juice
3 oz Champagne
1 small scoop pomegranate-blueberry ice cream*
Pour pomegranate juice in a champagne saucer. Top with Champagne and gently in drop ice cream.
*A melon baller makes small, pretty scoops
I love that these were a little fancy and a little like dessert. I had seconds.
