Try a few of these 27 festive and creative champagne cocktails at your upcoming party if you can’t decide what to make and serve.
Whether you’re popping bottles for New Year’s Eve, a birthday, or big wins at work, a glass of champagne makes celebrations a lot more festive.
But why stop at just a glass of champagne when you can turn it into a delicious cocktail?
Combine the fun, sparkly flavors of champagne with fruit juices, liqueurs, and more to create a truly unique drink.
I have listed 27 of my favorites below, so all you have to do is pick one (or a few!) and start celebrating.
But before we get to the list, let’s talk about champagne first.
Strictly speaking, champagne can only come from the Champagne region of France.
The cool climate and chalky soil in this area produce grapes that are high in acidity, which is essential for sparkling wine.
Champagne is made using a traditional method known as methode champenoise, or méthode traditionnelle.
In short, it’s all very complicated and takes a long time.
But these days, you can find bubbly wines that are similar to champagne but produced outside of France.
These are often called sparkling wines, and they can be made from any type of grape.
If you’re pressed for time, or budget, or just want to try something different, feel free to experiment with sparkling wine from all over the world.
But to truly get that champagne experience, having the real deal is the way to go.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about cocktails!
Here are 27 of my favorite champagne cocktails for any occasion.
Try out #24 at your next brunch get-together!
