This refreshing, bubbly Poinsettia Cocktail is the perfect addition to any holiday party.Let the holiday festivities begin! I’ve always loved the idea of serving a ‘signature’ cocktail at all of our holiday parties, and this easy, refreshing Poinsettia Cocktail is the perfect choice for any of your Christmas gatherings with friends and family. A Poinsettia Cocktail is simply cranberry juice, orange liquor (such as triple sec) and champagne or prosecco – garnished with a twist of orange peel.

2 fresh oranges, for garnish
20 ounces cranberry juice, chilled
4 ounces triple sec or Cointreau, chilled
1 750 ml bottle chilled champagne or prosecco
With a sharp paring knife or this channel knife gadget, cut 8 to 10 strips of orange peel into strands about 4 inches long. Place strands on a plate, then cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready to serve your cocktail.
In a pitcher, combine cranberry juice and triple sec.
Pour in half the bottle of champagne. Stir gently just to mix.
Divide the cranberry juice mixture among 8 to 10 champagne glasses. Top off with remaining champagne, and a strand of orange peel for garnish.
Serve immediately. Cheers!
