the new year is upon us...

i might have to test out this number. you know, quality control for the new year's party. i can't be serving kool-aid.

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 750-ml bottles chilled brut Champagne
  • 1 1/2 cups white rum
  • 1 1/4 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 large lemon, thinly sliced
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 1 ice block*


Bring 1/2 cup water and sugar to boil in small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer 5 minutes. Cool syrup completely.

Combine Champagne, rum, and pomegranate juice in punch bowl. Add enough syrup to sweeten to taste. Mix in lemon slices, pomegranate seeds, and mint leaves. Add ice block to bowl.

*ice block can be made by freezing water overnight in a pan, such as a fancy-shaped bundt pan.
