Do your plans for the holidays include any parties? Because I have found the perfect winter party cocktail!
I think every year I host some kind of holiday gathering. Whether it’s for book club or my family, I love any excuse to have guests over. Thankfully, the holidays give you many reasons to invite over your friends and family.
I also love making fun cocktails specifically for my gatherings. Sure, I could just open up some wine and leave it at that but I think it’s so much more fun to create a signature cocktail.
This year one of my signature cocktails is this fun and festive vanilla cranberry mimosa, made with Gloria Ferrer sparkling wine.
Gloria Ferrer wines are at the top of my favorite wine list. They have earned over 400 gold medals and 50 90+ scores in the last 5 years.
The sparkling wines of Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards are social, elegant and fun – a perfect match for any occasion.
I was able to sample both the Royal Cuvee – with tastes of green apple, citrus, and honey – and the Sonoma Brut – with tastes of pear, floral notes and almond. Both were perfect sparkling wines for this party drink.

Vanilla Cranberry Mimosa
This super fun and easy cocktail consists of one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations – vanilla and cranberry. I often will order a cranberry and vanilla vodka when I am out on the town with my friends and that was the inspiration for this drink.
To prepare this easy winter drink, I like to use a cocktail shaker to chill the vanilla vodka and cranberry juice. If you don’t have one, no worries – just refrigerate all of your ingredients beforehand.
This can also easily be made into a punch. All you have to do is multiply the cranberry juice and vanilla vodka by 6 and use an entire bottle of sparkling wine. Enjoy!
