I found these on Poppytalk but they’re actually from the blog Ladies and Gentlemen Home. Ladies and Gentlemen Home also provides these cocktail recipes:

Oolong Infused Ginger Plum Wine

1/2 cup loose Oolong tea leaves
10 cups water
1 bottle (750ml) Plum Wine
1-2 inch chunk of fresh ginger based on ginger ale of choice (they recommend Organic Santa Cruz Ginger Ale…it has real ginger! It makes it 10 times better).

Prep the tea the day before. But if you don’t have time, cut the water amount in half and add the other half with ice instead. Brew the loose tea leaves with hot boiling water. Let it steep for 3 min. Strain the tea leaves, Simply add the plum wine, chop/shred the ginger. Mix it all it in a pitcher and there’s your mix. Put the ginger ale on the side in an ice bowl to keep it cold.

Lemon Mint Sparkling Mimosa

1 750ml bottle Champagne
16 oz lemonade (blood orange or grapefruit juice are also fantastic)
½ fresh mint
2-3 lime or lemon
1 pomegranate
Tonic water

Mix Champagne and lemonade in a pitcher. Chop and crush the mint and add it to the mix. Put the lemons or limes and pomegranate in separate bowls on the side. Put tonic water on the side in an ice bowl to keep it cold.
