Champagne Cosmos

Champagne Cosmo - A Family Feast

For those of you celebrating today, Jack and I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

And speaking of celebrating…these Champagne Cosmos are a perfect way to add a little bit of grown-up cheer to the holidays!

Champagne Cosmo - A Family Feast

A few weeks ago – at a very fun ‘ugly sweater’ party we hosted at our house – these Champagne Cosmos were a huge hit! We simply mixed up some chilled cranberry juice cocktail, Grand Marnier and lime juice in a pitcher. Next we poured some of the cranberry juice mixture into martini glasses or champagne flutes and topped it with Proseco or champagne plus a slice of lime zest.

These Champagne Cosmos make a great signature cocktail for any party – and these would be perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebration next weekend.
