The earth has gone around the sun one more time and we’re getting ready to party like it’s 1999 again. Or something like that. We all know that champagne is the beverage of choice for your New Year’s Eve celebration, but can’t we do more with it? Yes, you will likely toast to Auld Lang Syne at midnight and your couple of sips of plain champagne are appropriate for that. But the holiday calls for an excuse to try something different with your bubbly, and I’m not talking about mimosas. So check out these champagne cocktails and enjoy exciting your taste buds as your nose is tickled this New Year’s Eve.
Coconut Champagne Cocktail
Coconut is a super popular flavor and maybe not one that you would think of in the middle of winter. That makes it all the more necessary to serve as something a little different as a champagne cocktail for this New Year’s Eve celebration. To make coconut champagne cocktail, you just have to mix 2 ounces of plain coconut water with 1 ounce of vodka. Toss in about 7 grapes and add about an ounce of champagne, and you’ll have a festive and light drink to enjoy. Plus the grapes are fun to snack on.
St. Germain and Orange Champagne Cocktail
St. Germain is a liquor that came out in 2007 and quickly became an outrageously popular drink with people all over the world from the moment it hit shelves. It’s an elderflower liquor that is made by Bacardi. You can use it for a flavorful champagne cocktail to serve on New Year’s. Mix 1 ounce of St. Germain, 1½ ounces of freshly squeezed orange juice, ½ ounce of vodka, and 3 ounces of champagne for a new flavor to tempt your tastebuds this holiday.
Raspberry Champagne Cocktail
Raspberries make me happy and provide a great flavor for cocktails and drinks in general. The only things you need for this champagne cocktail are 1.5 ounces of high-quality vodka, 2 ounces of pineapple juice, ½ ounce of simple syrup or any other comparable sweetener, and 2 – 4 ounces of your favorite champagne. Top it off with raspberries for a festive finish!
Berry Rose’ Cocktail
This champagne cocktail is tasty and has a romantic feel. Berry Rose’ Cocktail is made by slicing berries of your choice into attractive pieces, commonly strawberries or blueberries, and adding them to your rose’ champagne.
