Pomegranate-Pear Champagne Punch

Pomegranate Pear Champagne Punch

The typical beverage of choice for most people during the Super Bowl is beer. But, not for me. While watching the game last week, I was sipping on some of this pomegranate-pear champagne punch. I guess I just like to be fancy. And also, it was Sunday, which is my day for cooking and photographing everything for the blog, but whatever. Oh, and like always, I don’t want to drinks to go to waste, so I end up drinking both of them in the middle of the afternoon. I have no tolerance anymore and so then I fell asleep. I am so lame.

We don’t have any big plans for Valentine’s Day. I think since we have been together, we have only attempted to go out on Valentine’s Day like maybe once. We hate crowds so we are going to do what we always do for special days: Sit at home in PJ’s, eat a lot of fondue, and probably watch more Bones on Netflix. We are out of control!

I love pom juice, but I think my favorite part about this drink is the pear nectar and of course, the pretty pink color! This punch fruity and addicting! I think I will fancy things up this V-Day by mixing up more of this punch! Nothing says Valentine’s Day and romance like a glass of champagne, am I right?!

    haha I’m right there with you on Valentine’s Day – my husband and I never go out to celebrate since we’re not huge fans of crowds : ) And we usually just end up making dinner and watching tv – crazy life I live I tell you! This drink sounds so good!

    That sounds like a great valentines day! Me and my boyfriend never do anything on valentines day. This year he’s in Russia, so I think I will phone him up this year :)
    This looks great! What a lovely color!

    Looks great, but I’m pregnant. Any suggestions to substitute the champagne?

      Yes! You can try using sparkling cider or ginger ale.
