Whether you’re in charge of the office holiday party or hosting a family get-together, it’s always fun to feature a gorgeous holiday cocktail. A cranberry champagne cocktail is vibrant and easy to make — and it’s as pretty as a poinsettia. 

THE BEST PART IS, IT ONLY REQUIRES THREE INGREDIENTS: 

  • About 1/2 ounce of orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Mariner 
  • Approximately 3 ounces of 100% cranberry juice 
  • 3 ounces of champagne  

WHAT TO DO: 

Pour the orange liqueur into your favorite holiday glass, followed by cranberry juice, stirring well. Then add the champagne, garnish and cheers! 

NOTES, GARNISHES, TIPS AND TRICKS: 

  • Chill your glasses and your ingredients before making. 
  • Add a sprig of rosemary and some fresh cranberries as garnish. 
  • For the kids or nondrinkers, use a mix of orange juice, sparkling cider and cranberry juice.
