Cranberry and cherry juices give this champagne drink its festive bright red color.
Maraschino cherries (optional)
cranberry juice, chilled
Triple Sec, orange liqueur, or orange juice
maraschino cherry juice or grenadine syrup
champagne or sparkling apple juice or one 32-ounce bottle carbonated water or lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
Small carambola (star fruit) slices, seeded (optional)
- If you like, use a vegetable peeler or a thin sharp knife to thinly peel the tangerines into about 6-inch long spirals of peel. Place a tangerine spiral into each chilled champagne flute. If you like, add 1 or 2 maraschino cherries.
- In a glass pitcher, combine chilled cranberry juice, Triple Sec, and maraschino cherry juice.
- For each serving, half fill chilled champagne flute with cranberry juice mixture (about 2 ounces). Pour in the chilled champagne and fill almost to the top (about 2 ounces). Gently stir with an up-and-down motion (mixes the drink without destroying the carbonation of the champagne). Garnish the rim with a carambola (star fruit) slice. Makes 12 to 14 (4-ounce) servings.
