Happy Hour: Pomegranate-Champagne Punch(original recipe)

 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
 1 cup pear nectar
 1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
 1 bottle (750 ml) Champagne
It’s Thanksgiving this week and that means you’ll likely need to make a lot of drinks for guests. Punch is the perfect answer for a busy host/ess. You can make it ahead of time and top it off with the champagne (or prosecco/ginger ale/whatever sparkling thing the recipe calls for) when you’re ready to serve.
I made this punch for my wedding last year and everyone loved it! I pre-mixed the juices and Grand Marnier in the morning and instructed my mom to mix it all together right before cocktail hour. It’s super easy and tastes great. Add a block of ice dotted with pomegranate seeds to up the festive factor (how-to), and I promise you’ll impress your guests.
This recipe will make about 10-12 glasses of punch, but you can easily double or triple the recipe.


Guys, I’m really very obsessed with my friend Marissa’s mainly-cocktails blog. She should come on the show and make some holiday punch with us, right? Don’t you agree?

foodspotting:

It finally – finally! – feels like Spring in New York City, and we’re excited to bring together NYC foodspotters tomorrow night for our first ever Foodspotting Happy Hour at Ai Fiori, the latest restaurant and bar from one of our favorite chefs, Michael White.
We’ll be celebrating the good weather and ringing in Ai Fiori’s Spring Specialties with exclusive drink specials just for you guys and some yummy bites to try, too.
Last Friday we asked foodspotters on Facebook to name their favorite Spring drinks. In response to the online calls for gin, mint, light, citrus, cucumber, “sparkling” and “refreshing,” Ai Fiori’s cocktail master Eben Freeman created a special Foodspotting Spring cocktail called the Campari Cup, which will be available tomorrow at our event! You have to admit it looks pretty awesome.
For our friends who want to recreate the Campari Cup at home, here are the secret ingredients:
Campari Cup
Glass: highball Garnish: mint sprig and cucumber peel Ingredients: ½ oz. honey syrup ¾ oz. lemon juice 1 oz. Hendrick’s gin 1 oz. Campari Top up   club soda
Method: Combine honey syrup, lemon juice, and gin in a cobbler shaker. Shake and strain into glass. Fill glass with crushed ice, swizzle briefly and top with more ice. Pour chilled Campari over drink and top with club soda. Top again with crushed ice, place straws and garnish.
Looking forward to seeing you guys tomorrow! Don’t forget to RSVP.

1/2 cup cinnamon schnapps 
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cut into large chunks 
1/2 lemon, juiced
