I wanted to serve a drink for guests or special occasions that was a bit more interesting than a plain old glass of fizz and came up with the idea of these cranberry mimosas. They’re essentially a glass of bucks fizz (known as Orange Mimosas in the US) but instead of using orange juice, I’m using one of my favourite fruit juices – cranberry juice. You can use your favourite sparkling wine for this but I’m using Prosecco.
For that extra added wow factor, serve in your best champagne flutes and I added sprigs of rosemary into the glasses to add a bit of greenery. I also add some frozen berries to the bottom of each glass and these also act as little ice cubes, keeping the drink cool. You could even do a sugar rim on the top of the glass. This looks really festive so these drinks work really well for Christmas time and for New Years Eve, I served them at my New Years Eve Dinner Party earlier this year.
As a soft option for those who don’t drink or are driving, you can serve these with sparkling water and they’re equally delicious.
These drinks are so easy, you don’t even need a recipe really but to make them exactly how I made them, keep scrolling!
