Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

By Dec 28, 2015 November 1st, 2016 No Comments

I am always on the search for a delicious refreshing cocktail. I typically serve beer and wine when I host parties, but really wanted to branch out, and serve something more festive for my winter parties this year. The problem I have with most cocktails is, sometimes they taste so sugary, I can not finish them! This delicious Cranberry Champagne Cocktail is the so light and delicious all your guests will be going back for seconds… and dare I say thirds!
