This fruity Champagne Cocktail has quickly climbed to the top of my favorite drink list. I recently served this drink with Baked Brie and a Fruit and Cheese Board, and everyone went crazy for it. This cocktail is so quick you’ll be whipping it up all the time!
Champagne Cocktails can be made a million different ways. We’ve all had a mimosa, for instance (champagne and orange juice), and although those are delicious, this cocktail blows that one away. As a result, I don’t think I’ll ever be satisfied with a traditional mimosa again. This is the only Champagne Cocktail I want to to be sipping on!
Champagne Cocktail Ingredients:
- Champagne/Sparkling Wine: This is the base of the cocktail; use whatever brand you like. Since we’re adding stuff to it, don’t feel the need to spend a ton of money; a moderately priced sparkling wine should be just fine. Tip: You can even use sparkling apple cider for a non-alcoholic cocktail.
- Juice: Pomegranate or cherry juice is my favorite juices for this version. I love their color and their flavor.
- St. Germain (Elderflower Liqueur) or Raspberry Liqueur: St. Germain is floral, and the raspberry liqueur is fruity; choose whichever you prefer (or any other liqueur of your choice). Tip: Buy small bottles so that you can try different combinations.
- Fresh Fruit: This makes the cocktail look extra pretty. Garnish with raspberries, cherries, cranberries, or pomegranate seeds. And don’t forget to nibble on that boozy fruit!
Use my recipe as a base and switch around the juice, liqueur and fruit garnishes to make your favorite version.
Furthermore, you can make this champagne cocktail recipe in a pitcher (drinks for a crowd!), or let each person assemble their cocktail by setting out all the components alongside your champagne flutes. When I make this in a pitcher, I like to add some fresh fruit right into the pitcher (kind of like sangria).
Make this extra fun and fancy by adding a scoop of fruit sorbet right into each glass. It should come as absolutely no surprise that I love, love, love a scoop of raspberry sorbet floating in my champagne drinks. Is it a cocktail? Is it dessert? Yes and yes. And it’s amazing!
You can purchase small bottles of champagne, or sparkling wine in a can, which means you can whip up this cocktail for a couple of people with ease. Have a ho-hum day that needs something special? This is it!
