Christmas Morning Mimosas

Attention Moms and Dads, Christmas morning mimosas are a wonderful way to jump start the day... of course after all the gifts are opened and the kids are busy with their loot. Cheers!
1/4 cup Grand Marnier, plus 2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons super-fine sugar
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1 bottles Champagne
4 cups fresh orange juice
strips of orange peel, for garnish (optional)

In one small dish, pour 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier. In another small dish, pour the sugar. Dip the rims of 6 glasses in the Grand Marnier and then the sugar, twisting the glasses to coat the rims with sugar. Divide the pomegranate seeds between the glasses.

In a large pitcher, mix the remaining Grand Marnier, Champagne and orange juice. Divide between the six glasses. Garnish with orange peel, if desired.
