Cranberry juice, chilled
1 vanilla bean
Garnish (optional): sugar and halved vanilla beans
Combine a few cups chilled cranberry juice and ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Scrape in the seeds from vanilla bean. Shake well. Strain into Champagne glasses, filling only halfway. Top off the drinks with sparkling wine. For an extra-special touch, rim the glasses with sugar and garnish with halved vanilla beans.
