A Pink Poinsettia cocktail is the perfect complement to a pink and green holiday brunch!  When I saw these Pink Poinsettia napkins by Giddy Paperie, I loved the design and the bright, happy colors.  A non-traditional spin on Christmas brings so many creative ideas to mind- I had a ball designing this Christmas Brunch idea for The Supper Club- and I am thrilled to share the signature cocktail that would be so perfect to serve at the party!  The Pink Poinsettia napkin on the table in the photo below is my inspiration for this delicious cocktail!

For a Pink Poinsettia, you only need 3 ingredients and then cranberries for garnish.I like to freeze the cranberries to help keep the drink cool.

Pink Poinsettia Christmas Cocktail

Lydia Menzies
Servings 1


  • 2 TBSP Petron Orange Liqueur (chilled) (can sub another brand if needed)
  • 1/2 tsp 100% Pure Cranberry Juice (chilled)
  • Champagne (chilled)
  • 3 Frozen Cranberries (for garnish)


  • Combine orange liqueur and cranberry juice in one coupe glass or champagne flute.
    Top off with champagne.
    Garnish with 3 frozen cranberries.
    This makes one drink. When making this drink for a small crowd (4 or fewer people), I buy a miniature champagne bottle.

Serve the cocktails with a Giddy Paperie napkin lining the tray or platter.  Add a plate of crackers and cheese for a simple but beautiful presentation.

The drink is so pretty and festive!  When making for a group of 4 or fewer people, you can buy a miniature bottle of champagne rather than a large bottle.  Also, because you will add flavors to the champagne, you can go with a less expensive champagne.  If you’re like I am and are lured by the pretty Veuve bottle, you can save the Veuve for another time when you’re enjoying champagne by itself.

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”.
