- Cranberry Juice
Optional - Sugared Rim, Sugared Cranberries, fresh cranberries, Grand Marnier, Fresh Rosemary sprig, orange juice, Triple Sec Orange Liqueur

Cranberry Juice - Pure Cranberry Juice is going to be tarter than the sweeter Cranberry Juice Cocktail. It is up to you the flavor you prefer.
How to make Cranberry Mimosas
The Classic Mimosa is defined as being made with champagne (or other sparkling wine) and chilled citrus juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified.
For this recipe we changed up the classic mimosa and made it with just cranberry juice. If you love the orange/citrus flavor you can easily add orange juice to this recipe.
To make a cranberry mimosa you want to add the juice first and then the sparkling wine last. This allows you to decide how much champagne you want to add to the cocktail.
Make sure your Champagne and Cranberry Juice are cold/chilled.
If you don't like a strong mimosa you can add more cranberry juice and cut back on the champagne.
The raw cranberries should not be eaten but they look amazing in the cocktail.
If you are making these for a holiday gathering make sure you don't make them ahead of time. You don't want to lose to many of the champagne bubbles by having it sit in a pitcher.
