Cava and Pomegranate Cocktails

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 12 drinks

Removing seeds from a pomegranate can seem tricky. "Don't worry, it is easy!" José Andrés says. His method: Cut the pomegranate in half across the middle, not through the stem; then wrap each half in cheesecloth and, holding it over a large bowl, hit it hard with a spoon or rolling pin. "Just hit it! Really hit it!" Andrés urges. Then open up the bundle and pick out the seeds, which should practically pop out.

  1. Seeds from 1 pomegranate
  2. Two 750-milliliter bottles cava or other sparkling dry white wine, chilled
  3. 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  1. Fill 12 flutes with cava. Add 1 teaspoon of the pomegranate juice to each flute, garnish with pomegranate seeds and serve.
