Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

Hi Everyone,

Today I have for you a special holiday drink that screams New Years and celebrates the season. Plus it’s low-calorie, which is a plus.  It is my Cranberry Champagne Cocktail.

Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

It’s made with two simple ingredients cranberry juice and champagne.  It’s light, bubbly and has a wonderful hint of cranberry with the love of champagne.  It’s a wonderful drink to bring in the New Year.  It comes in at 118 calories a glass, which is not to shabby, so you don’t have to worry about bringing in the New Years with added calories.

To make the drink more festive I topped it with frozen cranberries.  I like doing this because it keeps the drinks cold without watering it down.  Also, if you tend to like your drinks a little sweeter, add a pinch of fine sugar to the cranberry juice before topping it with champagne.  You can even use a low-calorie cranberry juice to even cut the calories even more.

Cranberry Champagne Cocktail  I love simple recipes like this and with New Years just ahead of us, it’s nice to celebrate it with a low ingredient holiday drink.  I love fancy drinks, but when you have to use an ounce of this and an ounce of that, it becomes costly and I never use the rest of the ingredients, they just sit in my storage room.
