What a way to begin the Holiday season!

Recently Mom and I rescued a Dachshund mix puppy from a high kill shelter in Texas. He came with hookworms, severe Pneumonia, and to top it all off, Parvovirus.  After several sleepless stressful days it is apparent that Carson will fully recover. Update: Read our complete story about Carson’s Canine Parvo recovery.

After that ordeal it’s definitely Time for a mimosa. A cranberry mimosa is a refreshing way to relax, reflect and congratulate ourselves on keeping the dog alive. Life can throw you a curveball anytime it wants. When you win. Celebrate!

What is a Mimosa? 

This beautiful drink was originally concocted by a frenchman in the hotel Ritz in Paris about 1925. It’s now a well established part of the mixologist and culinary professionals repertoire. It’s also well known around the world as a good choice for large crowd adult refreshment.

A mimosa makes a perfect celebratory drink. It’s light and sparkling. This drink is often used for toastings. It’s also popular for Weddings, showers, girls night out…and really anytime you want a light drink. 

A mimosa is a chilled drink made with one part citrus juice and one part white wine or champagne. We are twisting the recipe a bit by substituting cranberry juice for the citrus. It’s a delicious twist. Promise.

Mimosas are often served at special breakfasts and brunches with the more traditional orange juice. Cranberry mimosas are perfect for Christmas morning, holiday parties or an after dinner drink too. 🙂

Cranberry Mimosas Recipe:

Mimosas are just about the easiest thing you could ever hope to make. This holiday drink is made with chilled cranberry juice and champagne. It’s also easy peasy to mix together fast for a big crowd. Dump a couple of fresh cranberries on top to garnish. They are so cute!

What is the best Champagne to use for Mimosas?

  • Prosecco and Cava both make a good mimosa. So does Brut Champagne. Keep the wine and champagne dry for the best result. The cranberry juice is sweet enough to balance dry sparkling wine or champagne beautifully.

Cranberry Mimosas make impressive Christmas cocktails. They are also ridiculously fast and easy to make.

  • A perfect party drink that’s quick to refill for hectic parties. When you need a fast, festive, easy, and delicious cocktail to serve your guests these are the ticket.
  • Make these party drinks even faster to serve by chilling the juice and bubbly ahead for several hours. 

This mimosa recipe is for two servings. However, In the NOTES section of our printable recipe card below you will find the proportions for a party pitcher. That will give you about 12 servings at a time.

SERVING SUGGESTION:

Add a beautiful holiday vibe to your festive drinks table. Put some Holiday greens on the table with a few christmas lights. Nestle the cranberry mimosas into the holiday greens. These ruby red beauties sparkle and shine. 

Champagne flutes are a lovely way to serve mimosas. Any wine or champagne glasses will work well. Choose the best ones for your intended purpose.
