Cranberry sauce always has a spot on my holiday table, but this favorite condiment shouldn’t be relegated to a once-a-year appearance. That’s why I like to use it in this fun spin on a Bellini for a drink that looks as festive as it tastes.
- ⅓ cup local cranberry sauce (smooth or whole berry can be used)
- 3-4 tablespoons pulp-free orange juice
- Brut sparkling wine (such as Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery)
- Fresh cranberries for garnish
Whisk together cranberry sauce and orange juice until smooth and thick, but pourable. Evenly divide the mixture between four champagne flutes (about 1 ½ tablespoons per glass). Top with sparkling wine and garnish with fresh cranberries.
