Cape Cod Sunrise recipe

Cape Cod Sunrise


  • 2 Cups cranberry juice
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice


Select freezer safe glasses. Stemmed glassware with a rounded bottom inside the glass creates the best effect. Fill the bottom quarter of the glass with cranberry juice. Freeze the glasses over night.

When you are ready to serve. Pour orange juice into the glasses and serve immediately. As the glass warms up the cranberry will float to the top, creating your Cape Cod sunrise.

Cape Cod Sunrise Recipe Tip

Add a bit of champagne to turn this delightful juice into something special to celebrate the New Year or Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy the dining experience at this Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast.

At The Palmer House Inn our two to four course Cape Cod Gourmet breakfasts are always an event. Sit in the sun dappled breakfast room, as the aroma of fresh brewed coffee fills the room and enjoy a delightful meal. We use the finest ingredients and local Cape Cod grown and produced foods. Meals frequently consist of a fruit starter, followed by a sweet or savory main dish.

The Inn’s organic herb garden, we affectionately refer to as The Humble Innkeeper’s Garden, is one of the secluded nooks where you can spend time relaxing. Many of the garnishes for the breakfasts are picked each day from this garden to ensure top quality ingredients are used.

Palmer House favorites include:

Baked pears in brown sugar and spice followed by gingerbread pancakes with lemon sauce and crispy bacon, or Palmer House cranberry sorbet followed by Atlantic salmon quiche with cream cheese and a bagel.
