A bubbly drink is like drinking glitter. Thankfully, it tastes way better and doesn't require a trip to the crafts store. If you're in search of a tasty, sparkly beverage, we found the best champagne cocktails for you here. Sure, we've got the classics, like a French 75 and Kir Royale. But we also ventured deep into the craft cocktail world to find creative creations like a Champagne Margarita and Caramel Apple Mimosa.
Born in Paris in the early 1900s, the French 75 is a simple, elegant, champagne cocktail. Made with Champagne, gin, lemon juice, and sugar, it’ll have you saying oui, oui, oui, all the way home.
For a fun variation, opt for Empress 1908 gin and rose syrup. This will give the classic champagne cocktail a purple hue (thanks to the butterfly pea flower in the gin), and add a delightful floral flavor.
Another popular French drink, the kir royale is traditionally made with crème de cassis (sweet liqueur made from blackcurrant.) This recipe knocks down the sweetness a few notches by using blackcurrant syrup and blueberries.
Oh, you like to drink your champagne by itself? That's cute. But we'll take it with a side of bourbon. And apple cider.
Our preferences are always changing, but we know we'll always love two things: easy recipes, and dessert. Mixing champagne with sherbet fits perfectly into both those categories.
