Two words to describe this big batch Christmas cocktail: Merry + bright.
I mean, just look at those colors!! My family made this as a pre-dinner cocktail but really, it’s an anytime cocktail.
Like a breakfast cocktail. There’s orange juice so it’s kinda sorta healthy. Think of it as a screwdriver with a kick.
Spoiler alert: The kick is Grand Marnier and a Prosecco floater.
Seriously, I’m in love with these colors. Are you planning a party or brunch? Because you should just so you can serve this big batch Christmas cocktail. Like an ugly sweater party?! I have my ugly sweater vest (yup, it’s a vest) ready to rock ‘n roll. It’s quite spectacularly tacky, if I do say so myself.
Consider this my Christmas gift to you. Need more convincing? We went through TWO batches of this cocktail at Thanksgiving and a great time was had by all.
Even though my mom said my batch was a bit strong. Oops.
What can I say? Tis the season!
- 32 oz. cranberry juice
- 16 oz. orange juice
- 1 shot, Grand Marnier
- In a large pitcher, combine the ice, cranberry juice, vodka and Grand Marnier. Stir to combine and then add the orange juice.
- Top each glass with a Prosecco floater for some bubbly.
