Spoon one ounce of pomegranate juice into a Champagne flute, and fill with chilled sparkling rośe. Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds.

Befuddled by removing pomegranate seeds? Try these tricks: Roll the pomegranate on the counter or table to loosen the seeds. Score around the middle, then tear in half with your hands. Hold each half over a bowl, seeds facing down, and tap the skin with a wooden spoon, squeezing gently to release the seeds.

Try these festive garnishes with a simple flute of bubbly: fresh blackberries, a rosemary sprig, or slice of pear dropped into the flute before pouring; fresh cranberries on a skewer; sliced star fruit on the rim.
