Cranberry Mimosas

Great holiday morning drink! We had these on Christmas morning as we were opening gifts and everyone wanted a second one (and a third!) Big hit!

Ingredients:

4 cups cranberry juice, chilled
4 cups orange juice
2 (750 ml.) bottles Champagne, chilled
12 slices fresh orange, for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Fill twelve 12-ounce glasses with ice; pour 1/3 cup cranberry juice into each glass. Top each serving with 1/3 cup orange juice and about 1/2 cup Champagne. Garnish with orange slices, if desired.

    My husband & I REALLY loved these. We drank them all day long on Christmas. Can’t wait to share this with the rest of the family.

    Can you use a different liquor instead of champagne? It wouldn’t be a mimosa, but I can’t tolerate champagne.

      Cranberry mixed with sparkling water?

    Vodka is an alternative to the champagne.

    Can you buy cranberry juice somewhere…all I find these days is Cranberry Juice cocktail…is this what you use??? Thanx.

      Yes, I believe that Cranberry Juice is pretty much sold as “Cranberry Juice Cocktail” nowadays.

    100% Juice Cranberry juice can be found almost anywhere Cranberry juice is sold. Pretty sure Ocean Spray makes it along with many other brands.

    Ginger ale can be used instead of champagne – we make orange juice and ginger ale “mimosas” for our kids on special occasions. Can’t wait to try the cranberry version!

    Any chance you know how to make if I wanted to put it in a dispenser – so everyone can serve themselves, pre-mixed? Would I use 1 jug of cranberry, 1 jug of orange juice and 2 bottles of champagne?

      I haven’t tried using champagne (bubbles) in a dispenser, so I’m not sure how that works out. I’m sure people do champagne punch, so it would probably be okay. You’d just have to play around with the flavor as far as amounts.

    Proseco is great in place of champagne.
