New Year's Eve Cocktails

New Year's Eve is one day away, and we couldn't be more excited to ring in a new year! We wanted to share with you a few champagne cocktails...because what's more fun then celebrating with our favorite bubbly? Cheers to you!

Champagne Cosmo (this is Amy's favorite champagne cocktail)

  • 1-1/2 cups cranberry juice cocktail, chilled
  • 1/2 cup Grand Marnier
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 8 thin strips of lime zest (from 2 limes), each about 1/4 inch
  • wide and 3 inches long
  • 2 bottles (750 ml) brut sparkling wine or Champagne, chilled
Combine the cranberry juice, Grand Marnier, and lime juice in a small pitcher and mix well. Hold a lime strip over a tall Champagne flute, twist or tie it into a single knot to release the essential oils, and drop the zest into the flute. Repeat with the remaining zest and seven more flutes. Divide the juice mixture equally among the flutes. Top each flute with the sparkling wine (depending on the size of your flutes, you may not need all of the wine). Serve immediately.

Sparkling Champagne Cocktail

  • 3/5 glass Champagne
  • 1/5 glass Orange flavored vodka
  • 1/5 glass Cointreau
  • 1 Sugar Cube
Sparkling Champagne Cocktail is very easy to prepare and the first step involved in it includes mixing all the four ingredients in a champagne flute. Next step is to garnish the prepared mixture with a slice of tangerine or cranberries. Make sure to use fresh tangerine and cranberries for garnishing for a better look of this cocktail when you will serve it. Quantity of ingredients mentioned in this recipe are enough to serve 4 people at a time.
