Cocktail Time


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!

Persephone's Kiss

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.

  1. This is a really creative drink, I really like your ideas!

    PS: And there's nothing wrong with seconds when it comes to a new drink that you like. :)
