Santa's Sparkling Cocktail


Santa's Sparkling Cocktail

10 Min

Tradition has taught us that Santa looks forward to milk & cookies when he visits us, but rumor has it that this year, his beverage of choice is our Sparkling Cocktail. Yes, these go just as well with a charcuterie board as they do with Ms. Claus’ cookies. So, this year, set out a glass or two and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you’ll find, with your name on it, under the tree.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 4 holiday picks or decorative toothpicks
  • 2 cups ice cubes, divided
  • 1 1/2 cup refrigerated fruit punch or cranberry juice
  • 3/4 cup refrigerated orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec liqueur
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Prosecco sparkling wine
  • 2 orange slices, cut in half
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary

What to Do

  1. Place 4 to 5 cranberries on each pick; set aside. In a cocktail shaker or pitcher, combine 1 cup ice cubes, fruit punch, orange juice, and triple sec; shake or stir until thoroughly combined. 
  2. Place water on a shallow plate. Place sugar on another shallow plate. Dip a glass in water, then dip immediately into sugar to coat rim. Repeat with remaining glasses. Fill each glass halfway with ice cubes. Pour cocktail mixture over ice and top with ¼ cup Prosecco. Garnish each cocktail with an orange slice, cranberry skewer, and rosemary sprig. Enjoy!

Test Kitchen Tip

If you’d like to make these kid- or elf-friendly, leave out the Triple Sec, add an additional cup of orange juice, and replace the Prosecco with ginger ale.
