Santa Baby Cocktail

Posted on

We love making these drinks – it’s a family tradition that goes way back!

At first, we used to mix pomegranate seeds, a bit of Chambord (that’s a fancy raspberry liqueur), and Champagne. But a few years back, we switched it up and started making our own raspberry syrup – trust me, it’s amazing!

And guess what? You can easily turn this into a non-alcoholic version! Just use sparkling cider or nonalcoholic sparkling wine instead.

This recipe is super simple, and everyone in the family looks forward to it every year!

Here’s how you make the Raspberry Simple Syrup:

  • – 1/2 cup water
  • – 1/2 cup sugar
  • – 3/4 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Now, for the cocktail:

  • – 1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds
  • – 2 ounces raspberry simple syrup
  • – 4 ounces champagne or sparkling wine or nonalcoholic sparkling wine for a mocktail


  • To whip up the syrup, toss water, sugar, and raspberries into a small saucepan over medium heat. Let it simmer for 5 minutes, then take it off the heat and let it cool for an hour.
  • Next, strain out the raspberry bits.
  • For the best results, chill both the syrup and the champagne beforehand.
  • Want to get fancy? Try dipping the rim of your champagne glass in agave syrup, then in finely shredded coconut or sugar.
  • Now, assemble your drink – toss pomegranate seeds into the glass, pour in the simple syrup and champagne. Cheers! 🥂
