Cranberry Mimosa Ingredients

Cranberry Juice Cocktail– don’t skip the sugar, you’ll need the sweetness to come from the juice in this drink, we aren’t adding any extra sweetener like simple syrup. We really love Simply Cranberry juice for all of our holiday cocktails.

Triple Sec– this makes for a smoother drink, and adds a hint of orange to the mimosa.

Champage– whatever brand you prefer, for a super budget friendly option, we love Cupcake and Barefoot champagnes and sparkling wines.

Fresh cranberries and rosemary sprigs– for serving, these are optional but really take this fun mimosa to the next level.

Tips & Tricks:

  • You can use any champagne you love in these drinks, obviously, the better the champagne, the better the flavor, but the cranberry juice is the star of this drink and it won’t make a huge difference. Get the best champagne you can, or use an inexpensive champagne, you will still have a delicious cocktail to enjoy.
  • For a more powerful mimosa, alter the ratio a bit, with more champagne and just a splash of cranberry juice, if you prefer.
  • To make an alcohol free “mimosa,” use ginger ale or lemon-lime soda in place of the champagne for all of the delicious flavor and bubbles.
