My husband and I are never really big into the whole Valentine's dinner. We certainly are not anti Valentines, and since this year falls on a weekend, we probably will do something. I tend actually look forward to it more for fun with my girlfriends. I love to create cocktails that can be used for girl nights and this one pairs love and cocktail quite well.
Or I think so at least.
I had some Berzenten Pear left and while thinking up what I could make for this years day of love, I knew I wanted to work the remainder of the pear liqueur into whatever I made. It is sweet and light and once I started coming up with ideas, pomegranate came to mind. I also liked the idea of using frozen pomegranate seeds instead of ice. Just a small touch.
The result is simple and tasty. The favors play off of each other really well and I think this is a drink that will be perfect to make for a small gathering or a big batch.
Hopefully you guys can find a reason to drink this...sooner rather than later!
Poma Pear Fizz

Put juice, pear liqueur, triple sec and ice in a shaker and shake vigorously. In a glass, place the frozen seeds and pour juice mixture over the seeds and top with champagne.
