Stephanie made these for both Thanksgiving and Christmas 2012. They are festive looking and very tasty, too. Each time she thought she was only going to make one batch, but guests clamored for another. Only running out of vodka put a stop to making a third.
1 bottle of Champagne or any sparkling wine, chilled
1 bottle cranberry juice (the real stuff), chilled
1/2 bottle orange-flavored vodka, chilled
1 cup fresh cranberries, frozen
1 orange, sliced
bag of ice, quantity as needed
Mix the first three ingredients together in a large pitcher. Pour into ice-filled glasses, garnishing with fresh cranberries and a slice of orange.
