The Poinsettia- A Christmas Champagne Cocktail

christmas champagne cocktailA couple weeks ago, I was out to dinner at a french restaurant and had a delicious cocktail that I just had to recreate here at home. They had a nice selection cocktails but I went with the Christmas champagne cocktail, called Poinsettia, which had a little bit of Grand Marnier in the mix. 

I love making cocktails that are easy to put together and don’t require too many ingredients, but look and taste like there was some thought put into them. That way I can give my guest a little something special without it taking too much time away from them while I prepare it.

Christmas Champagne Cocktail – Poinsettia 

Ingredients:

  • 1oz cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz grand marnier
  • Sparkline wine (I used Freixenet, a cava) 
  • Cranberries or pomegranate seeds, and rosemary for garnish

In a champagne glass, pour cranberry juice, and grand marnier, then top with sparkling wine. Add garnishes.
