More Pomegranate Drinks for Fall

  • Pomegranate Grapefruit Campari Cocktail Gorgeous signature cocktail with a grownup taste. Even the guys will love this drink!
  • Isle of Pines:  The name sounds perfect for a rustic woodland wedding in the mountains, but the drink is actually named after a Cuban Island south of Havana. The deep, rich color is perfect for fall, but the flavors are bright and sweet enough for most of your guests to enjoy.
  • Pomegranate Champagne Punch: This is a pared down version of the Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail from Martha Stewart. This drink uses pear nectar instead of vodka. It's a perfect cocktail at altitude, where alcohol will affect your guests more quickly and powerfully.
