Festive holiday drink

Cranberries roasted with a bit of orange zest, orange liqueur and a hefty sprinkling of sugar makes a festive and tasty garnish to a glass of champagne.

Tips

  • Use a fine microplane to zest your orange peel.
  • The cranberries can be roasted a couple days in advance and stored covered in the fridge.
  • Cranberries freeze beautifully, so as soon as they come on the market, buy a couple bags and toss them in your freezer.
  • 1 bag of cranberries will make enough garnish for 12 or more glasses of champagne. This is an easy special cocktail to make for a large number of people.

A festive twist on a holiday glass of champagne. Roasted cranberries provide beautiful color as well as a tasty garnish...if you can daintily dig it out of the bottom of the glass!
Ingredients
  • 1 12-ounce bag of cranberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Zest from one orange
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 T Patron citronge, or other orange liquor
  • 2 bottles of champagne
  • 12 sprigs of mint
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Put the cranberries on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the cranberries with the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Roast for 20 minutes until cranberry skins have popped and liquid has been reduced to a syrup.
  2. Allow to cool. Refrigerate until ready to use. May be made a day or two in advance.
  3. Fill champagne glasses with champagne. Drop a spoonful of roasted cranberries in each flute. Garnish each glass with a sprig of mint.
