The Poinsettia (Champagne Cocktail)

This delightful drink is perfect for Christmas morning or a holiday brunch.  I mean, we all love Mimosas, but the holidays calls for something a little different and special :-)  And what’s more perfect than a drink called, “The Poinsettia?!”

For quick party service, mix the cranberry juice and triple sec and store in a chilled pitcher. When it is time to serve, simply pour from the pitcher into individual glasses and top with Champagne.
