Cranberry Orange Prosecco Cocktail

Serves 6

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1 cup granulated sugar or sugar substitute
Juice and zest of 1 orange
1 (750 ml) bottle Prosecco, champagne, or sparking white wine


Combine cranberries and cranberry juice in a food processor or blender. Blend until berries are roughly chopped.

In a small saucepan, combine the berry mixture, sugar, and orange juice and zest. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until syrupy. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain syrup into a small bowl; let cool to room temperature. Do not refrigerate.

Just before serving, add about 1 Tablespoon of cranberry syrup to each glass. Top with sparkling wine and serve.
