Cherries, commonly enjoyed year-round as dried and frozen cherries and cherry juice, can add antioxidant benefits, rich Red color and sweet-tart taste to holiday fare. In fact, cherries’ Red color comes from powerful antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins that studies suggest may reduce inflammation and risk factors for heart disease.
Makes 8 servings.

• 1-1/2 cups tart cherry juice
• 1/2 cup orange juice
• 1/2 cup orange liqueur such as Grand Mariner, Curacao or Cointreau
• 1 bottle (750 ml) champagne or sparkling wine

In a large pitcher, combine cherry juice, orange juice and liqueur. Chill at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Just before serving stir cherry mixture. Tilt pitcher; slowly pour in champagne. Stir gently. Serve in champagne flutes or wine glasses.

Tip: for a festive garnish, add a pitted tart cherry and a quartered slice of orange on a cocktail pick to each glass.
