  • ½ cup sugar

  • 1 cup fresh cranberries

  • 1 ounce Charbay ruby red grapefruit vodka

  • 2 ounces Champagne

  • 1 ounce cranberry juice

  • 1 ounce black currant juice


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, dissolve sugar into 1 1/2 cups water. Add cranberries and simmer for 5 minutes, or until softened. Remove from heat and let cool.
