Get Your Bubbly On!

By Pamela Morgan, Flirting with Flavorsorange fizzIt’s that time of year!  Yes to the Holidays!

Yes to entertaining with style and pizazz!

Yes to celebrating with ease!

One of the tricks I always use is to make a signature drink. It’s so impressive when your guests walk in the door to hand them a cocktail that is pretty and festive. Then they know from the get-go that you made a special effort!

You’re gonna love this Pomegranate Orange Fizz. You can make the simple syrup ahead of time, and then you have no muss or fuss when your guests arrive. And the sugar rim is genius
and if you plan ahead, buy colored sugar for even more fun! 

Just pop open that bottle of bubbly and pour! And if you want a non alcoholic drink, then add sparkling water. 

Watch the video below to see how !

Cheers to effortless entertaining !
