The Pomegranate Fizz is a wine and pomegranate cocktail that is festive and perfect for the holidays. With pomegranates in season and their bright red color, they need to be on your holiday cocktail menu.
Now that pomegranate is in season it is time to add it to your bar menu mix. The pomegranate arils are such a gorgeous red and give off a Holiday vibe in this festive wine cocktail. It is a must-have drink at your cocktail party this season. We typically think of refreshing wine cocktails during Summer but this gorgeous ruby wine cocktail finds itself in the chilly winter.

Pomegranate, cutting, and eating
The Pomegranate fruit is a superfood. I am not saying drinking is healthy but there are some benefits to consuming the pomegranate arils and juice. So drink up and enjoy!
Be careful when you crack open a pomegranate. They can get messy. I suggest cutting them over a bowl to catch the arils or on a cutting board.
The little white seeds in the arils are edible but are tough. For this recipe, they are a garnish and most likely won’t be eaten.
I have also used a Pinot Grigio and it wasn’t as good as the Moscato. In my opinion, don’t deviate from the recipe. Moscatos work best when it comes to white wine cocktails. They are sweeter and pair well with juices.
