I'm not a huge Champagne guy and even less huge when it comes to the classic Mimosa (Champagne & OJ). I find it a bit sweet. But pomegranate juice is tart and makes a very different, yet still special drink. There's really no need to buy expensive champagne when you're mixing it like this--that would just be unnecessary.
- One 26-ounce bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine (by the way, sparkling wine is just Champagne that comes from somewhere other than the Champagne region of France)
- 12 ounces pomegranate juice
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- Fill tall glasses with ice and add the Champagne and juice
- Squeeze, then drop in the lemon wedge and serve
