I don't know when summer will end here in LA but I am ready for something cool...105 degrees on September 14th!!! What's the deal?!
On another note, I think I am finally ready to get back to work and today is my first post in weeks so I thought I would kick the weekend off with something chic and chill and since pomegranates are now in season let's get the party started with this delicious concoction.
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/4-inch-thick slice fresh ginger
4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon Cointreau or other orange liqueur
1 750-ml bottle brut Champagne, well chilled
Boil first 3 ingredients in heavy small saucepan until syrup is reduced to 1/3 cup, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Cool.
Pour 4 teaspoons pomegranate syrup, 1 tablespoon orange juice, and 1/4 teaspoon Cointreau into each of four 6-ounce Champagne flutes. Fill each with 2/3 cup Champagne.
