Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic 100% cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar
  • 1 ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 1 ounce cranberry syrup
  • 4 ounces dry champagne , prosecco, or sparkling wine

Instructions

  1. Make the cranberry syrup: in a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together cranberry juice and sugar until dissolved. Raise heat and bring to a boil, then remove from heat, pour into a glass jar or bowl and let cool completely.
  2. To make each cocktail, pour St. Germain and cranberry syrup into a stemmed champagne glass, then top off with about 4 ounces champagne. Serve immediately with sparkling cranberry skewers.
  3. To make sparkling cranberry skewers: skewer about 5 cranberries onto a standard toothpick, the spritz very lightly with water--too much and your sugar will get clumpy! Place about 1/2 cup white granulated sugar in a shallow dish--an individual tart dish is awesome--then add cranberry skewers, tossing with a fork until completely coated in sugar. Remove with a fork and use as garnish.

Recipe Notes

Cranberry syrup makes enough for about 8-10 cocktails.
