Cava and Pomegranate Cocktails

Removing seeds from a pomegranate can seem tricky. "Don't worry, it is easy!" Jose Andres 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!" Andres urges. Then open up the bundle and pick out the seeds, which should practically pop out.
