Sparkling Holiday Cocktail

Bring on the bubbles please!

This looks nice for the New years Eve party.

To keep your drinks chilling nicely, the night before your party place a few fresh cranberries onto a skewer and pop them into the freezer. Then once you’re ready to pour on bubbles, drop a skewer into each flute and you’ll have a perfectly chilled glass no matter how long someone decides to sip on their drink!
