Ingredients
  1. 1 crisp apple (such as a Honeycrisp apple), cored and thinly sliced
  2. 1 crisp pear (a Bosc pair is a good choice), cored and thinly sliced
  3. 1 cup brandy
  4. 3 cups unfiltered apple cider
  5. 3 cinnamon sticks (each about 3 inches long)
  6. 6 whole cloves
  7. 2 whole star anise
  8. 1 bottle of sparkling wine
  9. Pomegranate seeds
Instructions
  1. Mix all of the ingredients together — minus the sparkling wine and pomegranate seeds — and let sit in the fridge, covered, the day before serving.
To serve at a party
  1. Pour apple/pear brandy mixture into a large jar or canister and using a turkey baster, pour enough to fill each champagne glass about 1/4 - 1/2 full. Top off with the sparkling wine and a dollop of pomegranate seeds and enjoy!
