The sweet and mineral combination of the oysters with the tart and salty of the cranberry mignonette cleans your palate each time, making room for a second or third (or fourth) round.

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher or sea salt

Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the sparkling wine, cranberries, and vinegar and pulse until the cranberries are broken down, but still have bits of texture. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
