This cranberry spritz is inspired by my favorite cocktail—the Aperol Spritz.
The slightly bitter taste of cranberry and Aperol go perfectly with champagne or Prosecco bubbles. And cocktails with bubbles always feel right for a holiday get together or New Year’s Eve. Cheers!

Cranberry Spritz Ingredients:
- Champagne or Prosecco
- Cranberry Juice
- Orange Slices
- Fresh Cranberries
- Cranberry Ice Cubes (optional, but so fun!)
How to Make a Cranberry Spritz:
Combine the champagne or Prosecco, Aperol, and cranberry juice over ice in a wine glass. Garnish with fresh cranberries and orange slices and serve chilled.
If you want your drink to feel extra festive, you can freeze some fresh cranberries in an ice cube tray beforehand to add a really pretty presentation element.
This drink is pretty simple to make—just one or two servings (use a mini bottle of champagne if that’s all you need) or you can open a few regular-sized bottles if you’re having a party!
This is seriously such an easy and delicious cocktail to throw together—I’m totally obsessed with it this season! xo. Emma

I made these for my Bookclub in December and they loved it!
This one is looking delicious, I really wanna try this some time.
That sound super fresh and fruity, love it!
This looks so good and refreshing! I need to try this soon!
Yes, that’s one of the reasons I love this cocktail. It’s quite refreshing. It’s a great just before dinner drink, or just after a bigger meal and you’re feeling too full for something else. It’s nice and light.
Sprizz is my favorite cocktail ever and I can really drink it whenever (doesn’t matter if it is a summer Cocktail, I also drink it in winter) xD
I never drank it with cranberries, but the recipe sounds interesting. I might try it soon! 🙂
I love a good Aperol Spritz but I’ve never put cranberries into my ice cubes. This is such a cute idea!
Wow, the drink looks so photogenic! I’m going to have to try this! 🙂
Merry Christmas to the ABM team once again! ????????
