Ruby Yacht

Serves: Makes 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • ½ ounce (1 tablespoon) Fresh Pomegranate Juice (see below)
  • ½ ounce (1 tablespoon) Simple Syrup (see below)
  • 4 ounces (½ cup) dry Champagne or other sparkling wine, well chilled
  • 1 orange twist


Procedures:

Pomegranate juice makes an elegant Champagne cocktail the color of a costly sparkling rosé. One sip and you may want to make this festive beverage your house specialty. It is lovely to look at and entirely too easy to drink.
  1. Chill a Champagne flute by filling it with ice water. Let stand for one minute, then drain.


  2. Put the pomegranate juice and the syrup in the flute, then top with Champagne. Add the orange twist and serve at once.


  3. Fresh Pomegranate Juice:

    Choose an unblemished pomegranate with no cracks. With the heel of your hand, roll the pomegranate around on a cutting board, pressing firmly to crush the internal cells. You will hear the crackle of popping membranes. Keep rolling and pressing until the pomegranate feels slightly flaccid, taking care not to breach the skin, or the juice-which stains fiercely-will squirt out. Hold the softened pomegranate over a bowl and, with a wooden or metal skewer, pierce it gingerly in one spot, releasing the juice into the bowl. Squeeze the pomegranate to release more juice. You should have about ⅓ cup.

    Simple Syrup:

    In a small bowl, pour ½ cup boiling water over ½ cup superfine sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the syrup becomes clear. Chill thoroughly. Keep leftover syrup in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Makes about ¾ cup.
