Ingredients
  

  • .5 ounce lemon juice fresh
  • .5 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce gin
  • 3 ounces champagne
  • pomegranate seeds
  • lemon twist

Instructions
 

  • Add a few pomegranate seeds to a champagne flute.
  • In a shaker combine lemon juice, simple syrup and gin with a big handful of ice. Shake, shake, shake!
  • Pour into flute, and top with champagne.
  • Using a potato peeler, peel off a long strip lemon. Be sure to do this over the cocktail so that the oils from the peel go into the drink. Next tightly coil the peel (still over the cocktail) to make a twist. Rest the twist on the rim of the flute and serve.

Notes

To make simple syrup, bring 1 cup of water to a boil then add 1 cup of sugar. Immediately remove from heat and stir. Wait for mixture to cool. I suggest making a big batch and storing in the refrigerator for future cocktails.  Also, some prefer cognac instead of gin for this drink. I personally would go with the gin. I think the herbaceous flavors of gin pair better with lemon and champagne.
