Cocktails with champagne



No wedding party is complete without champagne. Diversify your holiday table and bar you can, and prepare wedding cocktails based on champagne! Before you entrust it to the bartender, try to do everything herself: at the same time you try a lot of new delicious cocktails! Preparation of any cocktail you take a few minutes out of your list.

1/2 tsp raw honey

1 tsp chambord liquor

  4. Fill up glass with Champagne, Prosecco, or Moscato wine
  5. Add a dash of vodka
  6. Add a dash of lemon juice

Notes

For a sweeter cocktail, try using moscato wine. If you prefer a champagne cocktail, adding a hint of raw honey or chambord is a nice sweet touch.

 

Pineapple Mimosas By Michelle on Blackberry Babe

Pineapple Mimosas

Ingredients (serves 1)

1/3 cup sparkling wine*

1/4 cup pineapple juice

1-2 tablespoons lemon-lime soda (like 7up)**

Instructions

Chill the sparkling wine in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. The colder, the better!

In a champagne flute, add sparkling wine and pineapple juice.

Top the cocktail off with a splash of lemon-lime soda, to taste.

Notes

*Most mimosa recipes call for a dryer champagne, like a Brut. If you incorporate the lemon-lime soda, I would recommend a Brut. If you would like to just use sparkling wine and pineapple juice, try to find a sweeter variety of champagne to use. The pineapple juice can be quite tart!

The perfect mix of sweet and sour with a punch of rum. This minty and fruity cocktail recipe is a personal favorite.

1 tablespoon agave nectar

12 mint leaves

juice of one lime, about 2 tablespoons

3 ounces good rum

I like to juice the lime and grapefruit, then cut them into wedges and muddle.

To a shaker add grapefruit juice and wedges, mint, agave, ice, lime juice and lime wedges.

Muddle crushing to release flavors.

Add rum and shake. (do not add carbonated beverage)

Spoon out the grapefruit and lime wedges.

Fill 8 to 10 ounce glasses with ice and pour half full with grapefruit/mint mixture. Finish filling glass with champagne and stir to combine.
