Gingered cranberry poinsettia cocktails

I love me a good festive cocktail and am always looking for ideas. Especially for good welcome drinks for cocktail parties and this poinsettia cocktail is just perfect in every way. I love how easy it is to knock together (especially if you make the syrup ahead of time) and they are so very impressive! Say hello to the Mimosa’s more delicious, prettier cousin!

What is a poinsettia drink?

A poinsettia cocktail is a champagne/sparkling wine-based cocktail. Cointreau (orange liqueur) and cranberry juice add color and flavor, making this the perfect cocktail for Christmas or holiday parties.

Make a simple syrup by heating sugar and water in a saucepan. Add fresh ginger, orange zest and a sprig of rosemary and allow to infuse then cool. Strain then pour into champagne flutes followed by Cointreau (or Triple sec), cranberry juice and sparkling wine/champagne.
