The Backyard: Cocktail Ideas

Blueprint, Volume 1 2006

Offer an enticing nonalcoholic choice, like Izze Sparkling Juice ($6 for four at Target stores), and a pitcher of one cocktail, such as a pomegranate sparkler. Then switch to wine at dinner.

Pomegranate Sparkler
1. Bring 4 1/4 cups water to a boil. Remove from heat.
2. Add 6 Red Zinger tea bags; let steep 5 minutes.
3. Remove tea bags. In large bowl, stir together the tea, 4 cups pomegranate juice (try Pom Wonderful, $5), and 1 cup pineapple juice; chill.
4. Divide between 2 pitchers, and pour a bottle of prosecco into each.
5. Stir and serve over ice.
