New Year’s Pomegranate Champagne Punch

Pomegranate juice and champagne? A mod mimosa–mmmm. Although the vodka in this recipe might tip me over the tipsy cliff–this drink is a fun and festive party punch that serves up a blast of perfect pomegranate antioxidants. Yay! For a less-alcoholic version, omit the vodka; for a non-alcoholic version, combine 2 1/2 cups seltzer and 2 cups pomegranate juice and garnish with lemon twists.

Punch tip: Make ice ahead of time with juice you will be using in the punch–when the cubes melt, the punch will not become diluted.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups champagne
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 cup seltzer
1/2 cup citrus vodka
Lemon twists for garnish

Combine champagne, pomegranate juice, seltzer and vodka in a large bowl or pitcher. Serve over ice with a twist of lemon.

I was hoping for a non-alcoholic version that tasted better than seltzer and juice.

Lynn D., just read the article: "For a less-alcoholic version, omit the vodka; for a non-alcoholic version, combine 2 1/2 cups seltzer and 2 cups pomegranate juice and garnish with lemon twists." Enjoy!

Not good for diabetics -- how do we celebrate using this without the vodka? Thanks, otherwise it would be GREAT!
