Cranberry Mimosa

Cranberry Mimosa

Everyone needs some Christmas Cheer right?  Even though – quite honestly – this little cocktail should be drunk all year (really I’m serious – it’s good) this does have the right colors for Christmas so might as well use it!!!

This is also a GREAT drink to serve because of a few reasons – it’s affordable.  You don’t need expensive Champagne – you just need a nice (read cheap) sparkling wine.  Reason 2?  It’s great for people who don’t drink a lot.  It’s not a martini (although you should be making those for yourself).  It’s a nice sipping not too strong drink!  I highly recommend!

Cranberry Mimosa


  • Cranberry Juice
  • Sparkling White Wine (I like Spumante cause it has a little sweet to it but Brut would work too)
  • Optional green sugar for rimming glasses


  1. If rimming glass moisten glass and roll it in sugar
  2. Pour cranberry directly into fluted glass - fill about 1/3-1/2 of the way
  3. Top off with Sparkling Wine
  4. Serve Immediately

  3. Hi! This looks so good and pretty easy. I do not drink much so I like that you mentioned it would be good for someone like me. 🙂 I was wondering if I could feature you in a ‘Christmas Party Drinks’ round-up on my Tips & Trickslinky party tomorrow on my blog (Gina’s Craft Corner)? I would include the picture and a link to your page. Just let me know. 🙂

    • Gina please do (include it I mean!) Yes, this is a great drink for people who don’t drink much because it’s only half champagne 🙂 So not even a full glass! Enjoy – I love it!

  4. I love this … simple yet perfect to share with friends a wonderful Christmas Eve! Thank you for saving my get together.

  5. So festive! I might try a non-alcoholic version. Very inspiring!

  6. This is a great idea! Very festive and looks very tasty as well!

  7. Would using pink champagne (sparkling wine) change the flavor?

  8. Hello,

    I am working on setting up an online boutique. I am in the process of writing some blogs that my audience would be interested in. The blog I am writing is called “10 Holiday Libation Ideas for Your Christmas Party.” I would love to feature one of your images in my blog (the Cranberry Mimosa). May I have permission to do so? Thank you for your consideration.



  1. […] Y’all. I love mimosas. I was thinking of ways to make them more Christmas-ish and I came across this recipe. Not only would it be just as tasty using cranberry juice instead of orange juice, but they have the rims covered in green sugar. Merry Christmas! You can find the simple recipe here. […]
