Blood Orange Pomegranate Sparkling Cocktail Recipe

Nothing says celebration like something bubbly so, for this year’s award season, I’ve created this Blood Orange Pomegranate Sparkling Cocktail Recipe

It’s made with seasonal ingredients, as bright red as the red carpet yet balanced enough that it can pair with a variety of finger foods. Of course, it’s also quite fabulous on its own so don’t feel the need to throw a whole party just for an excuse to mix one of these up.

Go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
