If you are looking for a really neat presentation for this drink. Try sugaring the cranberries – easy recipe here at http://www.goodeatsblog.com/2009/12/sugared-cranberries.html and refridgerate or freeze. Drop them into the drink upon serving. As the sugar dissolves, they fizz and bubble, making the appearance of the drink even more festive!

Very Festive – I use an Esperienze Champagne Glass – I love the classic shape for the bubbles. Can find it at http://www.parkerspantry.com – they are hard to find – so thought I would share.

What an elegant cocktail! I need to get out of the wine rut I’m in and try something like this when people come over for dinner. It would be a nice change.
