12 Days of Christmas Cocktails: Poinsettia

Merry Christmas, folks!  Are you looking for an alternative to the traditional mimosa?  The poinsettia is a super easy no fuss champagne cocktail that can easily be thrown together in a pinch.  This cocktail is perfect for when you want to impress, but don’t want to spend all night mixing drinks.  Looking forward, this would be a fantastic drink to help ring in the new year.

If you’re feeling extra fancy, Sarah suggests adding an ounce of Cointreau.  I didn’t have any of this on hand but you can’t really go wrong with cranberry and orange so I’m betting that this would be even more delicious.

What’s your favorite way to spice up champagne?  Leave us a comment and let us know!
