Pomegranate Bellini

I love making Bellinis during Christmas! It is so important that you use freshly squeezed juice. If you are unable to juice freshly, just drink the Prosecco to avoid disappointment. Try the same ratio with fresh blood orange juice during the holidays.

pomegranates, halved
cold Prosecco

Place a strainer over a bowl and squeeze the juice from the pomegranates. Reserve any unsqueezed arils (the juicy red bits). Place 12 oz of fresh pomegranate juice in a pitcher, slowly pour in 1 bottle of Prosecco. Gently stir with a bar spoon then allow the froth to subside. Pour into flutes. Spoon a few reserved arils into each glass. Drink immediately.

Serves 6-8.
