Sparkling pomegranate punch

Sparkling Pomegranate Punch Recipe

We've created a spritzer-like summer cocktail to serve a crowd with Red Zinger tea, pomegranate juice and chilled prosecco. Prosecco is a bubbly wine like champagne, but it comes from Italy and not France. For a nonalcoholic version of our pretty pomegranate punch, simply substitute sparkling cider for the prosecco. Your punch bowl will be the life of the party!
