Cranberry Orange Mimosa
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 1 cup Orange Juice
  • handful fresh cranberries
  • 2 bottles champagne
  1. Add OJ and cranberries to a sauce pan and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  2. Juice will darken in color, thicken a bit and cranberries will burst
  3. Now you have 2 options- blend to puree, or mash with a fork. I mashed because I don't mind it a bit chunky
  4. Give a taste, cranberries can be really sour, so you may need to add a bit of sugar, stir in a tsp at a time, while it's still warm.
  5. If you're serving with sweeter champagne, like I did, you need less sugar.
  6. Spoon 1 Tbls of puree, top with 5 ounces of champagne
  7. Turn to your friend and cheers to all you're grateful for!
