Offering a seasonal blend of flavor is this cranberry mimosa cocktail by lifestyle blog Brit+Co that celebrates brunch with festive holiday flavors. The drink is ideal to serve in the morning with breakfast or transitional enough in taste to also be served at dinner or during cocktail hour.

Mimosas are typically seen as a morning cocktail with the ingredients of orange juice mixed with champagne. This holiday version plays off of the same flavors with a few additions to capture the winter temporal climate. The cocktail is made from a base of champagne or a similar bubbly beverage topped with orange slices, orange zest and cranberries. Fresh mint is added to capture the refreshingly cold flavor of the season and the drink can also be garnished with a whimsical piece of cotton candy.
