Cocktail of the Month: Sparkling Pomegranate Punch

Thanksgiving is approaching quickly! Hopefully you have everything you need to serve Thanksgiving dinner (or at least sturdy plastic containers to take with you when you visit other people's homes!). But don't forget our favorite food group: the cocktails! This Sparkling Pomegranate Punch is perfect to serve for Turkey Day.
