This festive holiday drink by lifestyle blog Adventures in Fashion captures the essence of the winter season in a chilled, sophisticated champagne beverage. The drink is an updated spin on mulled wine by substituting the base with a lighter, sparkling champagne to create a refreshing, airy beverage filled with spiced flavors.
During the cooler months consumers often gravitate towards warmer fare to keep them cozy while the weather outside is less than so. Despite the Easy Holiday Cocktail being a chilled drink, the beverage reflects that warmness in the use of mulled spices that are boiled with sugar and water to create a piquant simple syrup. The syrup is then added to the champagne along with frozen cranberries and a spring of fresh pine for an added woodsy scent.
