Peggy Lampman's Wednesday dinnerFeed: Greta's Cranberry Cosmos
Peggy Lampman | Contributor
This is a great drink developed by my daughter, Greta, who knows her stuff. To assist with tuition payments at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she bartended in downtown Chicago. I love inventing recipes for food — she loves inventing recipes for drinks.
Her bartending days are behind her, but she hasn't lost her knack. I put her to work coming up with a "spirited" recipe for the season.
2 parts vodka
1 part unsweetened cranberry juice
3 parts sweetened cranberry juice
1 part Grand Marnier
1. Combine the vodka, cranberry juices, Grand Marnier in a small pitcher and mix well. Add sugar to taste, if desired.
2.Add champagne to taste. Pour into martini glasses or champagne flutes. Garnish each glass with orange zest and serve.
