With the arrival of fresh cranberries and juicy oranges in my supermarket, whipping up new seasonal recipes is hard to resist. If you liked our Pineapple Prosecco Punch, this Cranberry Prosecco Punch is a fun twist perfect for fall and winter entertaining.
Cranberry Prosecco Punch
I’m on a bit of a Prosecco kick of late now that I’ve found a few brands that I adore – it truly is champagne taste on a beer budget!
If you’re new to Prosecco or don’t really understand the difference between Italian Prosecco and French Champagne, let’s just say Prosecco is Champagne’s fresh, young, and vibrant younger cousin with a delicious and less sharp flavor profile.
Because of the way it’s made, Prosecco is super affordable so you can do some experimenting to find a brand you like but you don’t have to worry too much when you’re using it in a cocktail recipe like this Cranberry Prosecco Punch.
To make this Cranberry Prosecco Punch more fall-inspired, I added a little bit of orange-flavored liqueur (Cointreau), sparkling cranberry ginger ale and a handful of frozen cranberries. A swirl of orange zest would be wonderful in this, as well.
If you’re not a fan of Cointreau, feel free to add a splash of white rum or vodka along with a bit of orange juice to still achieve that same blend of fall flavors.
I love that this Cranberry Prosecco Punch captures the delicious flavors of fall while being fresh and bright. A lot of fall-inspired cocktails can be a bit heavy or strong so this is a nice alternative, especially if you’re serving it with brunch or appetizers.
