The Ultimate Cranberry Mimosa

The ultimate cranberry mimosa requires making your own cranberry juice, but the work is well worth it. Bid adieu to the old year and ring in the new with natural cranberry flavor, a festive red color, and the bright bubbles of sparkling wine.

The Ultimate Cranberry Mimosa Recipe


1 bag of cranberries
½ cup of sugar
1 cup of water
One bottle of your favorite prosecco, cava, or champagne


  1. Combine cranberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low-medium and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Allow the mixture to cool, and press through a thin sieve to remove the cranberry skins. You’ll be left with a syrupy juice to which you can add a little water, though the thicker texture works perfectly for this cocktail.
  3. Add 1 ½ oz of the homemade cranberry juice to a champagne flute and top with sparkling white wine. Garnish with a fresh cranberry or two, and enjoy!
