Cosmopolitan Champagne

In celebration of Girls Night In and think pink month for breast cancer awareness our 12 hour crop tomorrow and tonight as a treat we have enjoyed a glass of Cosmo Bubbles....oh so YUM!!

Recipe from

Preparation Time 5 minutes
Cooking Time 10 minutes

Ingredients (serves 6)
  • 250ml (1 cup) cranberry juice
  • 2 tbs Cointreau liqueur
  • 2 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 6 sugar cubes
  • 1 x 750ml btl chilled pink Champagne or sparkling wine
  • Place cranberry juice in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until reduced by two-thirds. Remove from heat and set aside for 30 minutes to cool.
  • Combine the cranberry juice, Cointreau and lime juice in a small jug. Place a sugar cube in each serving glass. Pour the cranberry mixture over the sugar. I doubled this mixture and put into a bottle so it was on hand for tonight and tomorrows crop. I think this would also make a nice premixed gift pack...for christmas just another idea!!!

    Top with Champagne or sparkling wine and serve immediately.
