Poinsettia Mimosas
Ingredients
  • 3  tangerines (optional)
  •  Maraschino cherries (optional)
  • 3  cups  cranberry juice, chilled
  • 1/4  cup  Triple Sec, other orange liqueur, or orange juice
  • 2  tablespoons  maraschino cherry juice or grenadine syrup
  • 1 750  milliliter bottle  champagne or sparkling apple juice, or one 32-ounce bottle carbonated water or lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
Directions

1. If using tangerines, use a vegetable peeler or a thin sharp knife to thinly peel the tangerines (refrigerate fruit for another use). Trim peel to form about 6-inch-long spirals. Place a tangerine spiral in each chilled champagne glass, or set spirals aside to add to the rims. If desired, place 1 or 2 maraschino cherries in each glass.

2. In a glass pitcher, combine cranberry juice, Triple Sec, and maraschino cherry juice.

3. For each serving, pour about 1/4 cup cranberry juice mixture into each champagne glass. Add about 1/4 cup champagne, filling glass nearly to the top. Gently stir with an up-and-down motion to mix the drink without destroying the carbonation of the champagne. Makes 12 to 14 (4-ounce) servings.
