Notes

If you don’t have a cocktail shaker or a strainer, this article has some awesome solutions for missing pieces for the home mixologist.

For a lower ABV cocktail skip the vodka or gin.

If you can’t find pomegranate juice cranberry juice is a good substitute.

To make a kid friendly mocktail version of this drink leave out the vodka or gin, and substitute the champagne with sparkling water, kombucha, or sparkling apple juice.
