It's the holiday season and that could only mean one thing: mid-week, mid-afternoon festive cocktails are totally appropriate this time of year. Tuesday, is that you? CHEERS! So we've dusted up on our bartending skills to test out some of our favourite cocktail recipes this year and will be posting our best creations every Thursday throughout December. First up, a fruity blend of Moët and cognac-soaked pomegranate seeds courtesy of our bartender du jour/associate editor Alannah O'Neill. (Just don't let the fruity pink colour fool you - this packs a boozy punch.) Here's what you need for a perfect and ELLE Canada-approved Moët and pomegranate cocktail* - pomegranate seeds, soaked in cognac - Moët champagne 1. Fill a container of pomegranate seeds to the brim with cognac, let soak in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Spoon into a chilled champagne flute. Click through for the final steps! 2. Pop a bottle of Moët and pour into the champagne flute. 3. And...that's it! Serve and enjoy. *Of all our cocktail creations, this was the favoured drink among the EC team. P.S.
