I really like the green sugar around the rim. Such an easy way to make it fancier!

I think the cranberry one looks really good. I love cosmo's so I'm sure this would be great. Thanks!

I love these cocktail ideas! We'll be hosting a post-Christmas party next week and this is just what I needed. The cranberry sparkle sounds especially yummy for the season. We have a fun recipe we came up with for the holidays... pomegranate mimosa's! Just add pomegranate seeds (that you've sugared and let sit for a bit) to the bottom of a champagne flute. Then add your champagne, triple sec, and fresh OJ. Yum!
