Rudolph’s bubbles and cranberry bling

  • Servings

  • Occasion


Ready in 5 minutes, serves 8.

For this cocktail we paid $12.95 for a bottle of Te Hana Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, which in our opinion is one of the best-quality and best-value sparkling wines around.

For a bit of fun, we used a Christmas-themed ice cube mould.

  • 300ml cranberry juice
  • 4 sugar cubes
  • 750ml bottle Te Hana Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1 small lime, thinly sliced

1. Pour the cranberry juice into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight.

2. When you’re ready to serve your drinks, place 1/2 sugar cube into each glass, then fill with chilled wine. Add a cranberry ice cube and slice of lime to serve.

Cook’s tip:
Make a single bottle of wine go further by filling each glass no more than two-thirds full.
