Christmas Cranberry Cocktail

Tis the season for Christmas Cocktails, y’all! I love a good easy drink to serve at holiday parties. It’s a plus when it’s the prettiest Christmas red color like this cranberry cocktail.

Christmas Cranberry Cocktail

Just a few ingredients

  • Cranberry Juice
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Bourbon
  • Rum

I love that the ingredients for this holiday cocktail are simple and easy to find! I don’t know about you, but I tend to always have cranberry juice on hand during the holidays!

Serve up this cranberry cocktail in a large punch bowl or pitcher. It’s easy to make it ahead of time so you have one less thing to worry about pre-holiday party. Keep it chilled and serve with or without ice!

Garnishing Christmas Cranberry Cocktails

You know I love garnishing, presentation is key in my hostess book. Since this is a Christmas cocktail, I love skewering a sprig of fresh rosemary with a cranberry! Display them on a bar cart in a small bowl! Just pop one in each glass and ta-da!

You can also make sugared cranberries (I like to call them sparkling cranberries) too. I love to use these for Christmas desserts, appetizers, and cocktails too. I share how to make the sparkling cranberries here.

You can really serve this cranberry winter cocktail in any glass shape, I love this pretty little coupe (it was actual my grandmothers!). Anything from a highball to a whiskey glass would be just fine, no rules. Just cranberry cocktails for Christmas! Delish!

I hope this Christmas Cranberry Cocktail puts a little extra cheer in your step this holiday season!
