Last year for Friendsgiving I made Cranberry Jello Shots, and I decided to keep the cranberry tradition running for this year’s cocktail.
Prosecco Cranberry Mimosa, serves one.
There is much debate on the proper proportions for a mimosa. I believe half champagne, half juice is technically correct. In my opinion, the 2 parts champagne (and in this case, Prosecco) to 1 part juice is the best version.
It’s less sweet and deeeelicious.
Garnish with a few pieces of thyme inside the glass and a few cranberries on a stick.
Need a mocktail version? I’ve got you covered.
Choose between sparkling juice (I used peach) and ginger ale to replace the Champagne or Prosecco. These are great alternatives that still create a sparkling drink. Ginger ale is sweeter.
I always make the cocktail for our family Thanksgiving too. It’s so fun. I try a different one each year, and I like recipes like this that allow guests to serve themselves.
Do you make cocktails for your Thanksgiving celebration? If so, share your traditions! I’d love to hear.

We also make cranberry mimosas, but we use homemade cranberry juice. You guys could do a post on homemade cranberry juice – it’s super easy and the results are delicious. Way less sweet than the store version (and you can sweeten to taste as well which is always nice).
I love these! They are my families’ traditional Christmas morning drink! I’m going to try adding the thyme this year, thanks for the idea!
We call these poinsettias- A Christmas morning tradition in my house! the thyme is a nice addition though!
This sounds great! I’ll have to give it a try for our Thanksgiving!
As a Swede I like the Swedish ingredient! 🙂
This just looks way too yummy. So can’t wait to try a variation!!

This looks delicious! I recently posted a recipe for a really similar Cranberry Mimosa, but I mulled the cranberry juice the same way you do wine – it’s amazing! And can be made in advance so is perfect for Thanksgiving as well.

Best holiday mimosa ever, I can’t wait to give this a shot. Though I will take champagne in pretty much any form…recently obsessed with Gloria Ferrer Rose. Crisp and a tiny bit sweet!
