Well, folks, we are down to the wire. The holiday season is here. 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 cocktail 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 mimosas 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!
What Do I Need To Make this Cranberry Mimosa recipe?
Sweetened Cranberry Juice
Champagne, Prosecco or Moscato if you like sweeter drinks
Fresh or frozen Cranberries
How Do I Make a Cranberry Mimosa?
Glide the orange slice around the rim of each champagne flute.
Place the sugar on a shallow dish, and dip the wet champagne flute into the sugar.
Carefully pour about ¼ cup of cranberry juice in each flute. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne.
Garnish with fresh cranberries and rosemary, if desired.
Mimosa Preparation Tips
- Brut Champagne is the best bubbly to make mimosa’s with. Dry Prosecco or A Cava are also great choices. If you like a sweeter cocktail, try a Moscato.
- Frozen cranberries will work just fine for this recipe.
- Orange and cranberry go together so nicely, but you can change up the flavor by using lemon or lime on the rim as well.
