Well, folks, we are down to the wire. Christmas is just two days away. Not to cause panic or alarm or anything of that nature but if we are lucky, the big guy will be coming down the chimney VERY SOON. Are you ready? For once, I am. All the presents are wrapped, cookies are baked and last minute decorating is done. The only thing left for me to do is cook Christmas Eve dinner. I can’t wait to serve this Cranberry Mimosa.

Each year I serve a signature drink for Christmas Eve dinner. I am keeping it simple this year with this refreshing mimosa recipe. Who said they have to be served just for brunch? Normally mimosa’s are made with champagne, but I like to use a Prosecco or Moscato too. I like sweet drinks so a Moscato will definitely make this Cranberry Mimosa sweeter. Totally your choice!
