1 cup ice
1 1/2 cups simple syrup
1 1/4 cups pomegranate juice, chilled
1 cup cranberry juice, chilled
1 (750-ml) bottle Four Seasons red wine, chilled
2 limes, thinly sliced
1 bunch fresh mint, for garnish
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds, for garnish
Place the ice in a 6- to 8-cup punch bowl. Add the simple syrup, pomegranate juice and cranberry juice. Stir well. Slowly pour in the red wine. Garnish with lime slices, mint sprigs and pomegranate seeds and serve. As an alternative to serving from a punch bowl, make the bellini mixture in a 6- to 8-cup pitcher. Divide the pomegranate seeds between 12 champagne flutes, add 1 slice of lime and 1 sprig of mint to each glass, and pour the bellini mixture into the prepared glasses. Serve Pomegranate and Cranberry Bellinis Wine Cocktail chill.
