Pomegranate Champagne Punch


I love serving a delicious party cocktail. So when Matt and I decided to host game night, I knew I had to come up with something fun for the ladies. I started with champagne because, well, I love the bubbly. Then I added some rum. Yes, rum. Finished it with some pomegranate juice and voila – instant hit.
