White Christmas mimosa

The perfect tipple for putting up the tree.


4 sprigs rosemary

12 fresh cranberries

4 oz. clear orange liqueur, such as triple sec, plus more for garnish

Clear sanding sugar or granulated sugar, for garnish

4 oz. white cranberry juice (such as Ocean Spray)

1 750-ml bottle of Champagne or other dry sparkling wine


Strip the green leaves from the bottom inch of the rosemary sprigs, leaving the rest of the leaves to the tip intact. Spear three cranberries each onto the bare end of the sprigs; set aside for garnish.

Pour some orange liquor onto a small plate like a saucer or salad plate. On another small plate, scatter a small handful of sugar. Wet the rim of a Champagne flute or coupe by dipping it in the liqueur, then dip or roll the wet rim in the sugar. Repeat with three additional glasses.

Add 1 ounce of cranberry juice and 1 ounce of orange liqueur to each of the four glasses.

Top each glass with Champagne and a rosemary-cranberry garnish; serve immediately.
