Holiday Cocktail: Cranberry Moscato

livinglesh holiday moscato

It’s time to kick off the holiday season and if you’re anything like me that means it’s time to also start getting ready to host holiday parties with great tablescapes, delicious food and festive holiday cocktails . Many of us have started to plan out our holiday shopping strategy, putting up decorations and making plans for any holiday gatherings. For my family, we have begun thinking about the menus for Christmas, and though I am a great chef and baker, my biggest skill lies in bartending (well, as an at-home bartender).  I’ve already begun trying out a few holiday cocktails and I’m excited to share these recipes with you. So to kick off the holiday cocktail season, I want to share with you this spectacular holiday Cranberry Moscato cocktail.

I have been playing around with cocktails all year. Earlier this year, I had created a few summer cocktails such as my Blueberry Honey Old Fashioned which I still make for my husband from time to time. But for the holiday season, I aimed to make cocktails that are great for holiday activities and festivities and would look great in a holiday tablescape.

The Cranberry Moscato cocktail is an ideal cocktail for those looking to host small holiday gatherings, or if you’re having a bigger gathering and want a drink to serve during your “cocktail hour” this drink is a great one as well. Even more, it’s a great cocktail to also serve during New Year’s Eve. The bubbles and the tang of the cranberries blend smoothly together to create taste that makes you feel like it was meant for the holiday season.

This holiday cocktail does not require a lot of time to put together. So as glasses need to be refilled, you can quickly make the drink without taking too much time away from spending time with friends and family and/or paying attention to making sure the food is available or preparing it in any way. Just make sure that you keep a few bottles of Moscato around to keep making the cocktail and to keep glasses filled as they run out. And then as the night continues, if you want to serve an after dinner drink, I recommend the Hot Vanilla Chai Tea Latte holiday cocktail that will be a great transition from the Cranberry Moscato.
