  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur such as Cointreau, 15ml
  • 3 ounces cranberry juice 90ml
  • champagne to top


  • Add orange liqueur and cranberry juice to a champagne flute.
  • Top with champagne (make sure to not pour it to the brim or the bubbles will overflow the glass).
  • Enjoy right away!


  • The recipe calls for cranberry juice that is a blend of cranberry juice and other fruit juices. You can also use a cranberry juice cocktail (100% cranberry juice sweetened with sugar). Do not use unsweetened 100% cranberry juice which would be too tart for this recipe. If this is what you have, you can add some simple syrup to the drink.
  • For garnish, I used sugared cranberries and rosemary sprigs. You can also just use fresh cranberries. To do that, first, pierce cranberries with a toothpick then push a rosemary sprig through the hole in the cranberries.
  • I used a demi-sec type of champagne for this recipe. Champagne should be chilled. Instead of champagne, you can also use prosecco (Italian sparkling wine). You can use brut champagne if you'd prefer a drink that is less sweet. 
  • Instead of orange liqueur, you can use orange juice.
  • Calories = 1 cocktail (the whole recipe). This is only an estimate!
