How wonderful your site! Love all the recipes and I find it very inspiring. This cocktail is wonderful for Christmas and it is nice and easy too!

The drink is so beautiful. Perfect for this time of year. It isn't too heavy on the cream or alcohol. Love that!! Great photos of the drink.

Do you use cranberry juice or cranberry juice cocktail? Looks lovely.

Went with the 100% pure cranberry juice and they were festive and really tasty. Making them for x-mas day also.

From The Italian Dish:

Sheryl: Yes, that was correct - pure cranberry juice!

this is one of the best things about cocktails, is that it is all about personal preference (at least in the home, when consistency isn't necessity) personally I like it.
