  • 1 bottle champagne (or prosecco)
  • 8 Skewers of fresh cranberries (for garnish,optional)
  • 8 Sprigs of Rosemary (for garnish, optional)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • Zest of a lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Grand Marnier (optional)

Cranberry Syrup

  • 1 3/8 Cup Sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cup Water
  • 4 Cup Fresh cranberries (1lb)
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon Juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • zest of lemon


  • 4 Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary
  • 8 Fresh Cranberries
  • Lime Juice (for rim of flute)
  • Sugar (for rim of flute)
  • splash orange bitters (to taste, optional)
  • splash Grand Marnier (to taste, optional)


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water and stir until sugar has dissolved. Add cranberries and lemon zest and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer mixture until cranberries burst, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes, then strain mixture into a clean jar. Let cool completely.


  • Line champagne flutes with lime and dip in sugar.
  • Pour about a tablespoon of cranberry syrup into the bottom of champagne flutes, then top off each flute with champagne.
  • Use a toothpick to poke a hole through cranberries. Thread rosemary skewer through cranberries and garnish mimosas.
  • So easy! Sometimes we get fancy and add a drop or two of orange bitters on top or even a splash of Grand Marnier and add maybe a garnish, but these are completely optional. 

Making this cocktail couldn't be any easier.

  • And even though we've listed amounts in the recipe card, this is one cocktail. No need to fuss over measuring exact quantities! You can just free pour to your taste buds.
