    I made this cocktail for my Christmas party. I used pommegranite juice instead of the cranberry juice. The drink was sweet without being too sweet. If you like a very sweet drink, use a sweeter champagne. The brute I used gives the drink a more dry taste, but is sweetened with the juices. This drink has a very festive pink color.

    I made these for a holiday party recently and everyone loved them! One thing I did differently was to sprinkle sugar on the cranberries in the freezer so they would have a lot of sparkle.
