persephone's punch

While i'm no Ardent Spirit just yet, i quite enjoy developing cocktails here and there - especially when i have a particular event in mind. I wanted to serve a couple of signature cocktails at Tammy & Todd's engagement party; I knew that one would be a Damiana margarita, at Todd's request. I set out to design a second drink that i thought Tammy would love.

It's loosely based on the Persephone's Undoing cocktail i created for jD & Logan's Oban party, which is mixed like a cosmo, but includes pomegranite juice. I wanted something a little more flirtatious, a little more festive for the engagement party. I think the end result was quite well received. My drink-development tasters were Heidi and Russell fo this round - send a few thank-yous their way if you had one of these treats!

2 parts pomegranite juice (I was using Pom this time)
1 part vodka (I used Ketel One, my house vodka)
2 parts champagne (I used Echo Brut)
A dash of sugar syrup (about a dash per drink you'll be serving)
A squeeze of lime (about a half a lime per drink)

Mix all but the champagne well over ice, strain into a glass, and top with champagne. If you're serving to a large crowd, mix a pitcher full, and serve in wine goblets over crushed ice.

I am not sure how well pomegranate juice keeps, but while they're in season I do want to try pressing some more in my juice press (with a cheesecloth, this time).

Any thoughts on preserving pomegranate juice? If it can be kept for a week or so, I'll make lots extra and bring you some.
