Nonalcoholic Pomegranate Spritzers:
Prepare Pomegranate Spritzers as directed, except substitute sparkling apple juice for the Champagne.
To prepare pomegranate seeds, score an "X" in the top of a pomegranate. Break apart into quarters. Working in a bowl of cool water, immerse each quarter; use your fingers to loosen the seeds from the white membrane. Discard peel and membrane. Drain seeds. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours before using.
