Tips & Tricks

  • Be sure to start with all of your ingredients chilled. This cocktail tastes best when served icy cold but adding ice will dilute the champagne.
  • You don’t have to use real champagne for this. Any moderately priced brand of sparkling wine will work just fine. If you’re looking for a good budget-friendly option, try a prosecco or even cava.
  • Replace the champagne and liqueur with sparking grape juice to make a non-alcoholic version of this festive cocktail.
Can I Use a Different Kind of Juice?

Sure! We like pure cranberry juice but any kind of cranberry juice blend will give you the same bright red color. Pomegranate juice would also work in this drink.
