Prosecco Cocktail with Spiked Cranberry Syrup


¼ cup pomegranate juice*, see below for making your own

¼ cup fresh orange juice, I’ve used Satsuma oranges

½ cup pure cane sugar

1 medium cinnamon stick

5 whole dried allspice berries

5 whole cloves

½ cup fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked over

1 bottle Prosecco



Make pomegranate juice (see below), or use store bought (all natural.)
Add pomegranate juice, orange juice, sugar and all spices to a non reactive 1 quart pot.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer to dissolve the sugar, the mixture will be syrupy. Cook stirring about 3 minutes. Will slightly reduce.
Let stand 5 minutes to infuse the flavors.


Strain the mixture into a small bowl with a fine mesh strainer.
Wipe the pan clean, add syrup.
Add cranberries and bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, stirring for 2 – 3 minutes until the cranberries ‘pop” and are broken up. Take off heat and cool.


Place the mixture in a small food processor and puree.
Strain the mixture and place in a clean glass container until ready to use.


To Serve:
Add 1 – 1  1/2 tablespoons of syrup on the bottom of pretty stemmed glass flutes.
Pour Prosecco or Champagne over. HINT: Taste with 1 tablespoon of syrup, add 1 1/2 tablespoons for a sweeter taste.


Thread three cranberries on a decorative 4 1/2 inch skewer. If you have mint with thick stems, twine it through the skewer, or add the sprig to the glass with the skewer.




*Pomegranate Juice:
Cut 1/4  piece from a large, fresh pomegranate. Remove seeds, leaving white pith behind. Will have roughly 1/2 cup of seeds.
Add the seeds to a small food processor and pulse until broken up.
Strain into a small bowl, using a fine mesh strainer. press hard on solids to release the juice.
Makes 1/4 cup of juice.
