Lindsey's Poinsettia Mimosas
Lindsey served these Poinsettias with the Sundried Tomato and Pesto Pinwheels and our family loved them. As Mom says, she "gets an A+ on taste AND presentation!" xoxo, Alison J.
1 jar Marachino cherries
3 cups cranberry juice, chilled
1/4 cup Triple Sec or Orange Juice (for non-alcoholic bev)
2 tablespoons Marachino cherry juice
1 bottle of champagne or sparkling cider (for non-alcoholic bev)
Use a veggie peeler to thinly peel orange. This will give you a pretty orange peel twist. We did not have peeler, so we had to improvise and cut the orange into segments. Place the twist on the rim of your champagne flute and drop a cherry in the bottom.
In glass pitcher, stir together cranberry juice, Triple Sec and Marachino cherry juice.
Pour about 1/4 cup cranberry mixture into each glass and top off with 1/4 cup champagne, filling nearly to the top.
Yields: 12 to 14 (4 oz.) servings
