I don’t do a lot of cocktails here on the blog… not because I don’t like them (I definitely do!), but because most of the time I’m a simple beer or whiskey on the rocks kind of gal… and those aren’t exactly recipes lol.  BUT… every now and then, I like to feel a bit girly and sip on something bubbly, sweet, and pretty.  Like these Pear Pomegranate Bellinis!!

I mean just look how beautiful!  I love the blush pink color with the little pops of red from the pomegranate arils.

I can’t take full credit for this recipe… I saw it in a Cooking Light magazine and just fell in love!!  Can you imagine serving these at your next girl’s night, a bachelorette party, Valentine’s Day bash, or even just for you and your sweetie on a date night in?

If you wanted to get really fancy, you could add something green to the garnish, like a sprig of fresh rosemary!

This recipe uses Prosecco, which is usually a bit lighter and fizzier than champagne, but I think if you substituted champagne, it would still taste just as amazing.  I really like the use of Prosecco here, not only for the fruity notes, but also because of it’s price tag.  A quality bottle of Prosecco will only cost about $12-15 here in Ohio!

This pear pomegranate Bellini recipe makes about 4 cups (so eight 1/2 cup servings), but is easily doubled if you’re serving a crowd 🙂

There are tons of “hacks” online about how to seed a pomegranate, and honestly, some of them do work, but I usually prefer to just pick up a container of pomegranate arils from my grocery store.  For just a few dollars, I get more seeds than I would get from one pomegranate, and none of the work!
