Signature Drink Saturday: Poinsettia Cocktail

3/4 cup cranberry juice
3 ounces simple syrup
6 ounces orange liqueur (cointreau)
1 (750-milliletter)bottle Champagne, chilled
18 fresh cranberries

In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine the cranberry juice, simle syrup and orange liqueur. Shake well (until the shaker is covered with condensation).

Strain the mixture, dividing it between six Champagne flutes.

Add the Champage, dividing it between the glasses. Garnish each drink with 3 cranberies skewered on a cocktail pick.
