Ice cubes
1
cup apple-flavored brandy
1/2
cup pomegranate juice
2
to 3 drops blue food color
1/3
cup grenadine syrup
6
maraschino cherries, if desired
  1. Fill 1-quart pitcher halfway with ice. Add brandy, pomegranate juice and food color; stir.
  2. Pour grenadine evenly into 6 champagne flutes. Carefully pour brandy mixture into each glass, straining out ice and pouring slowly down side of glass so mixture floats on top of grenadine layer. Garnish with cherries. Serve immediately.

If you pour the brandy mixture into the glasses too fast, it will mix into the grenadine instead of floating on top. Pouring down the side of the glass helps slow it down.
This cocktail can also be served in a martini glass, but the layered effect will be less visible due to the angled sides of the glass.
