Notes

Serving a crowd: 1.5L champagne bottle holds about 6 cups so if you multiplied this recipe by 5 you’d have enough for 10 people using a single bottle of champagne. You'll still need to pour each glass individually as champagne doesn't hold up well if try to combine it all in a pitcher.
Type of champagne: I prefer to use an Extra Dry or Brut, but you can use whatever type you prefer. This picture shows you the different variations in sweetness if you need help deciding.
Type of cranberry juice: Just make sure you're using cranberry juice and not "cranberry cocktail" juice mix.
Sweetness: If you find you want to add a bit of sweetness, just stir in a tiny bit of simple syrup.
