You'll want to mix up a pitcher of this bubbly drink for its gorgeous ruby hue alone. It's a refreshing prelude to any holiday meal, and it goes so well with the parmesan puffs.
  • 3 cups fresh blood-orange juice (from about 10 oranges)
  • 1/3 cup Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle Prosecco, chilled well
  • Stir together juice, liqueur, and sugar in a 2-quart pitcher until sugar is dissolved. Chill until cold, about 1 hour. Slowly pour in Prosecco, stirring to combine. Serve immediately.
Cooks’ note: Juice mixture, without Prosecco, can be chilled, covered, up to 1 day. Stir in Prosecco just before serving.
