Hi everyone! I’m Cyd Converse, founder, editor and cocktail shaker at The Sweetest Occasion, a lifestyle and entertaining site with a passion for the holidays. Today I am really excited to share this festive holiday cocktail recipe with you. I’ve dubbed it the Gingerberry Sparkler and it’s one of those happy bubbly cocktails that is perfect for brunch, sipping on Christmas morning, serving up at an ugly sweater party or even toasting the New Year! It combines a few of my favorite things – prosecco, cranberry and ginger beer for a somewhat unexpected yet totally delicious kick. Mix a pitcher before your friends arrive and set it out with an ice bucket and champagne coupes so they can readily pour themselves a cocktail whenever their glass runs dry.
1 bottle prosecco or similar
2 cups cranberry juice
6 oz vodka
12 oz ginger beer
Fresh cranberries (optional)
Pour champagne, cranberry juice and ginger beer into a large pitcher. Add vodka and stir gently. Serve over ice in champagne coupes or martini glasses. Garnish with fresh cranberries, sip and enjoy!
