Poinsettia is the cocktail hour

This is so simple to make and is an easy recipe to customise to your own taste – add a little more fizz for a lighter flourish, or a little less if it’s richness you’re after.

30ml Cranberry juice

Champagne, at the top

  • To a chilled glass, add the Cointreau to taste and the Cranberry Juice.
