Spritzes are for winter months too! Try replacing traditional Aperol with the smashed cranberry-brandy mixture in this cocktail recipe for a refreshing and cozy sipper.



  1. Muddle the cranberries with the brandy and sugar in a small bowl until the cranberries are in small bits and the sugar is dissolved. Strain into a large liquid measuring cup and stir in the bitters. (This can be done a day ahead; cover and refrigerate.)
  2. For each drink, add 1 ounce of the cranberry mixture to a glass filled with ice. Top with about 4 ounces prosecco and a splash of seltzer. Garnish with cranberries.
