I get a little bit crazy when I drink champagne. But I do love it so!
And I’m also crazy about cranberries and clementines that are both in season at the same time. And with this post, it goes without saying that I’m crazy about prosecco too!
So after being in the market this week and bringing home more cranberries and clementines, I thought that I’d pop the cork off of a chilled bottle of bubbly and celebrate . . . well, nothing in particular . . . just to celebrate the day, how’s that?
It’s sunny outside, a little chill is in the December air, a fire is crackling in the fireplace and I’ve just received flying colors from my annual end-of-the-year doctor and dentist visits. Those are good enough reasons to celebrate at 57 years old!!
Here’s lifting my glass to your good health too!
Cranberry, Clementine, and Prosecco Cocktails
2 cups cranberries
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. water
1 bottle Italian Prosecco
Peel the clementines.
Cut the clementines between the membranes and divide into sections.
In a saucepan, cook the cranberries with the sugar and water until they produce some juice, about 5 minutes.
Allow the cooked sugared-cranberries to cool to room temperature.
When ready to serve, place one to two clementine sections in each glass.
Pour a spoonful of the cranberry mixture in each glass.
Fill each glass with prosecco.
Serve and enjoy!
so festive for the holiday season too!
