Cranberry Mimosa (or a Poinsettia) is the perfect holiday cocktail. Serve this champagne cocktail at brunch, breakfast, dinner!
I’m not sure if I have told you…but I love champagne. It’s one of my favorite things to drink. I celebrate with it, I end a week with it, I have it at a BYOB. Love it.
Sometimes I think you need to doll it up a bit though to drink it – there is nothing more festive than a Cranberry Mimosa. Don’t you just love the amazingness of the holiday season?
I have a list of reasons that a Cranberry Mimosa is my favorite to serve and drink at Christmas time. 1 – it’s not just for Christmas no matter what I just said. It makes a fantastic brunch drink, great for a shower of any kind – it really is versatile. 2 – it’s a cheap way to serve up the champagne! 3 – even my husband will drink it with me and he’s not always big on a glass of champs.
So I always keep a little cranberry around in case I want to pop the cork (oh that lovely sound) and have a glass. He will join me if I make it a Cranberry Mimosa!
Some people may call this drink a Poinsettia. That’s fine! I, to keep it simple, just call it a Cranberry Mimosa – but whatever you call it – just enjoy it!
If you love drinking Cranberry Mimosa’s you should also try out:
- 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
- If rimming glass moisten glass and roll it in sugar
- Pour cranberry directly into fluted glass - fill about 1/3-1/2 of the way
- Top off with Sparkling Wine
- Serve Immediately
