Recipe Notes

*Yields 1 1/4 cups
**Cranberry simple syrup will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

The recipe makes 1 cocktail. 1 (750ml) bottle of champagne will make 6.

1 batch of simple syrup will make 20 cocktails. If you are making this for a party (like Thanksgiving) buy 4 bottles of champagne. You will have leftover champagne, which is never a bad thing.
