Holiday Cocktails

Making Spirits Bright

The Holidays are here and my favorite thing to do is whip up a few specialty cocktails in festive reds. I headed to Walmart for all of my necessities from juices and decorations to even the wines. They have a great selection!!

On my holiday cocktail menu are a Sparkling Rosé Mimosa and a Holiday Red Sangria. See below for the recipes.

Sparkling Rosé Mimosa

The perfect welcome cocktail, I made these Sparkling Rosé Mimosas simply by mixing equal parts chilled Sparkling Rosé with chilled cranberry juice. The key to making it extra festive is the garnish!! I used a long stem of rosemary and 3-4 cranberries to finish off the look!! (And why chilled? Because ice and bubbly are never a good combination!!)

Holiday Red Sangria

A great cocktail served in a punch bowl or a la carte. To make my Holiday red sangria I placed chilled red wine, a carafe of orange juice, and a carafe of cranberry juice at the bar. People can mix as they please with equal parts of each ingredient. Also have an ice bucket handy and cranberries and cinnamon sticks for garnish available. Cheers!
