Sparkling Cranberry Cocktail


4 servings


  • For the cranberry-rosemary syrup:
  • 1 heaping cup fresh cranberries
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 large sprigs fresh rosemary
  • For the cocktails:
  • 4 ounces cranberry-rosemary syrup, divided
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 - 750 ml bottle Champagne, Prosecco or sparkling white wine
  • Quartered orange slices, cranberries and rosemary sprigs, for garnish


    To make the syrup:
  1. Combine all 6 ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally until the cranberries burst and release their juices, about 5 minutes. 

  2. Remove the syrup from the heat and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain into a glass jar, pressing gently on the cranberries to extract their juices. Transfer the syrup to the refrigerator to cool completely.

  3. To make one cocktail:
  4. Fill a Champagne flute with 1 ounce cranberry-rosemary syrup. Layer with ½ ounce orange juice, and top with 6 ounces Champagne. Garnish with an orange slice, a few cranberries and a sprig of fresh rosemary. 

  5. Repeat with the remaining cocktails and enjoy!
