Cranberry lovers everywhere will fall in love with this delicious bubbly cranberry mimosa! It is easy to prepare and the perfect cocktail for holiday parties.
Cranberry everything is one of the best parts of the holiday season, don’t you think?
It’s such a delicious flavor that is so underrated the rest of the year. You bet I’m going to find every excuse to include cranberry in my recipes – including alcoholic beverages!
This cranberry mimosa is a must-try bubbly cocktail for the holiday season.
Cranberry mimosa recipe
If you’ve had the chance to try my Christmas mimosa, Apple cider mimosa, or pink lemonade mimosas, then you already know just how delicious mimosas are. But if you haven’t tried one with cranberry juice – you must!
This mimosa with cranberry juice is incredible and fits right in with the holidays. Enjoy your delicious cranberry cocktail on Christmas Day or host a fun afternoon with friends as a break from the holiday chaos. But if you decide to make yourself a cranberry juice and champagne mimosa for absolutely no reason, that’s fine too! No judgment here.
One of my favorite things about mimosa recipes is how easy they are to make. They take just minutes to prepare so they are the perfect crowd-pleasing drink.
If you’d rather guests be able to prepare their own cocktails, you can do that too! Since there are only a few ingredients, anyone can grab a drink and carry on to the rest of the party rather quickly.
Not a champagne person? No problem! You can easily swap out the champagne for other options such as vodka (just keep in mind the higher alcohol content). The great thing about holiday alcoholic beverages is you can make them however you like, so feel free to make it your own!

How to make cranberry mimosa

SERVE: Garnish with fresh cranberries and a sprig of fresh rosemary and serve. Enjoy!
What is the best cranberry juice cocktail to use for this recipe?
While you can use any cranberry juice for this recipe, my favorite that I highly recommend is Simply Cranberry. I love their line of juice cocktails as they are so rich in flavor and go so well with recipes.
What kind of glasses should I use to serve these mimosas?
It depends! If you’re serving these at a party with a large crowd of people, I highly recommend these shatterproof plastic flute glasses. If you’re not concerned about the glasses breaking, you can also try serving these Champagne flutes or these stemless flute glasses.
What is the best way to serve mimosas to a crowd?
If you’re going to be serving these at a Christmas party or other holiday gathering, you’ll want to be prepared. My personal preference is to set it up so that guests can serve themselves. This way, you can preserve the carbonation in the champagne.
However, if you prefer to go the easy route – you can premix a pitcher of these holiday cocktails. Just be sure to have a way to keep it cold. No one enjoys a warm mimosa! I actually want to pick up one of these drink dispensers for this very purpose!
