Cosmopolitan Lovespell Cocktail

Valentine's Day Recipes

We thought we would update the popular Cosmopolitan by substituting Champagne for the usual lemon vodka. We garnished the drinks with skewers of sugar-coated fresh cranberries (thawed frozen ones will work just fine, too).

Active time: 15 min. Start to finish: 2 1/4 hr.

Servings: Makes 10 drinks


1 1/4 cups Cointreau or Grand Marnier

1 1/4 cups cranberry juice cocktail

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

3 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar

4 cups chilled Champagne or other sparkling wine


Stir together Cointreau, juices, and sugar and chill, covered, 2 to 6 hours. Just before serving, divide among 10 Champagne flutes and top off with Champagne.
