This is quite nice We thought the triple sec really added to the flavor. Made for "Let's P-A-R-T-Y! 2010"
My sister made these for our Christmas party and used cranberry pomegranate juice instead. She used fancy cocktail sword picks with a gumdrop as a garnish. Very pretty and tasty.
Well, I am making it tomorrow night, but how great. I already tried it with a small split for just me. I did freeze a couple of cranberries for the bottom of the glass for something pretty. Then I tried it with white wine. I froze cranberry juice ice cubes with mint and then used the triple sec, and almost used a spritzer of seltzer water and the end to make a fancy wine cooler. Same method and ingredients and very good. It will be tomorrow night, but did try it. I wanted a cranberry drink and found it last week. Definitely very nice.
I had a Poinsettia at a Christmas party last week. It was just Champagne and cranberry juice...no triple sec, with frozen cranberries served in a Champagne flute. Super yummy and the cranberries made it look "poinsettia-ish"!
Very pretty and delicious Christmas cocktail.. Just served it for a Christmas dinner party.. Added a few raspberries to each glass.. Could not get fresh, so used frozen. Adds a pretty touch. Thanks for the recipe and Merry Christmas.
We liked these very much - very sweet. I used Cranberry Pomegranate juice and Cointreau. Couldn't drink very many b/c they were so sweet and "tasted like a hangover that would sneak up on you in the morning"...and it did! So be careful b/c they go down easily! :-) Thanks for the great recipe!
Very nice and very festive (and best of all, also very simple!). Thank you for sharing this receipe.
Had this for New Years. Chilled the glasses and it was a beautiful pink color and very romantic.
A dear friend of ours serves these cocktails every Christmas and they are wonderful. Makes you feel very classy even when you are eating pigs in a blanket along side the drink :) They are a must for the holidays. Thanks for posting this. Happy Holidays
Elegant looking and very tasty. Had a slight fruit taste that was just right. Great combination of flavors. I also chilled my champagne flutes before adding the champagne mixture. Can't wait to make these up for our family Christmas dinner.
