Pom iced tea (or any other brand of pomegranate tea for that matter) makes an amazing mimosa. How did we figure this out?

I had brought a lychee-flavored Pom iced tea, which we figured would make a great cocktail in a pinch. What resulted was a light, yet still intense, morning beverage that made everyone around the table go, "oooooooooooh." In the interest of paying forward good alcohol karma, here's the recipe:
