Prosecco with added happiness

Prosecco with added happiness

This cocktail recipe comes from Nigella Christmas, which shows.  To make more than you probably need, take 1 bottle of Prosecco (or other fizzy wine), add 125ml of Cointreau (you can use Gran Marnier but Cointreau is best) and 500ml of cranberry juice. Then mix and drink.

Five people tried this and all agreed universally that it was really rather tasty. The dryness of the Prosecco counteracts the sweetness of the Cointreau, making the whole very easy to drink and full of flavour. Highly recommended.

Who made it: Anna

The recipe book suggests adding vodka if you’re not particularly pro mocktails; I have a suspicion this would have improved the taste.
