CRANBERRY MARGARITAS: This cocktail just screams Christmas. I absolutely love the look and taste of this cranberry cocktail made with tequila, cranberry juice, lime juice, and triple sec. Easy, tasty, and very festive.
Scarlet O’Hara Cocktail
SCARLET O’HARA COCKTAIL: This is my favorite cocktail using cranberry juice. And it’s probably my favorite holiday cocktail. Of course, it’s my favorite because it’s so yummy, but also because it brings back so many fond memories. My Mom and I used to make these starting with Thanksgiving and drink them throughout the holiday season. They were our special holiday treat and cocktail tradition. I continue to drink these as a special treat during November and December and remember all of the happy wonderful holidays with my Mom.
CRANBERRY MIMOSAS: Sparkling bubbly Cranberry Mimosa will put everyone in a festive mood. Toast your holiday guests with this traditional mimosa made with cranberry juice instead of orange juice.
CRANBERRY SAGE MARTINI: As you can tell I love using fresh herbs in my cocktails. They perk up the flavors of the cocktails and give it much more depth. Sage is one of my favorite fall and winter herbs. It has a slightly bitter citrus flavor and lights up this cranberry cocktail with the aroma of pine the minute it hits your nose. This cocktail is a must-try!
Classic sea breeze cocktail
CLASSIC SEA BREEZE COCKTAIL: Feeling a little tropical this holiday season? Try a refreshing Sea Breeze Cocktail made with grapefruit juice, cranberry juice, and vodka. This is always a fan favorite when I make it. And of course, you can use some holiday garnishes like my Sugar Cranberries.
