Ginger Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
I find sipping a refreshing cocktail while cooking makes the whole process that much less stressful. Here is an elegant cocktail, which is full of antioxidants and it looks festive as well!

Ingredients
1 cup Pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 inch-thick slice fresh ginger
4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 teaspoons Grand Marnier
1 750-ml bottle brut Champagne or sparkling wine, chilled

Procedure
Combine pomegranate juice, sugar, and ginger in a pan over high heat until mixture is reduced to 1/3 of a cup. Stir constantly. Set aside until cool and remove ginger. Pour 4 tsp. of pomegranate syrup, 1 tbsp. orange juice, and 1/2 tsp. Grand Marnier into each of four Champagne flutes. Top off carefully with champagne and enjoy!
