Nothing says fall like cranberries, and that is true with this autumnal twist on a mimosa. Instead of mixing champagne with orange juice, you mix it with cranberry juice. Yum!
5. Tea and Cider Wassail

What drew my attention to this drink is the fact that I've never had wassail. In fact, I've only heard about it in Christmas music. This recipe is meant to be made in bulk, and requires plenty of hot tea, cranberry juice, either apple juice or apple cider, and orange juice. The recipe also calls for sugar, lemon, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and even apple slices if you want.

Everybody loves a martini – or at least, enough people do that martinis are now being made with everything. Including cranberries! This recipe is rather simple to follow and the only ingredients you have to gather are sugar, cranberries, and good vodka. Of course, given that the recipe involves cooking and basically making your own juice, you could always cheat a little and get some cranberry juice cocktail instead. Hurray for Ocean Spray!
