This is the drink for when you want your champagne but really need those antioxidants.
Does drinking champagne undo the goodness of pureed blackebrries, raspeberries and pomegranates?
I really don’t want to know.
Pull out your high speed blender, throw in a bunch of berries, pomegranate seeds, a teaspoon or more of sugar, 2 mint leaves and give it a whirl. Add to a glass crushed ice, pour in the berry puree and top with those bubbles.
It’s the weekend.
