Christmas Champagne Cocktail

Toast to Christmas With a Festive, Poinsettia-Colored Cocktail

The Bubbly Poinsettia is a Christmas-appropriate cocktail if there ever was one. The vivacious red cocktail gets its color from pomegranate liqueur, maraschino liqueur, and Rosé Champagne, and gin gives the tipple a spicy kick. Lighten the stiff drink with lemon juice and a generous splash of bubbly. Learn how to make a poinsettia-colored Champagne cocktail.
