Cranberry Spiced Mint Sparkler

Cranberry Spiced Mint Sparkler

Christmas week is here and I’m kicking it off with a cocktail that has a little bit of every Christmas flavor I love with this Cranberry Spiced Mint Sparkler.

Flavors of cranberry, mint and cardamom come together in this perfectly sweet, spiced and minty cocktail. The sparkling wine and just a touch of vodka acts as the spirit base, which keeps this drink light. And while I served this in martini glasses, I think this mix would work wonderfully as a Christmas sangria, simply multiple the recipe x 10 and instead of mixing in a cocktail shaker, stir it together in a large pitcher.
