  • Two small side plates
  • Glassware


  • 200 ml champagne
  • 50 ml cranberry juice
  • 1 tablespoon white granulated sugar
  • ½ tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ orange


  • First, make your orange peel twists. Using a vegetable peeler, shave a 2-inch piece of orange rind from the orange. Put to one side. 
  • Take two small side plates, and make your glass rim station! Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice from one half of the orange onto one of the plates. 
  • Put the sugar and cinnamon onto the other plate and mix it together, spreading it out. 
  • Now take your glass of choice, turn it upside down and dip the rim into the orange juice to coat the edge, and then into the sugar cinnamon mixture which will stick to it and form a crust around the top of the glass. 
  • Pour the cranberry juice into the bottom of both glasses and top up with champagne (both should be chilled)
  • Taking the orange peel in your fingers, twist it from the ends to form a corkscrew, then slide it into the cocktail down the side of the glass.
