There’s really never not a good time to sip the bubbly, but the festive holiday season makes breaking out the champagne feel even more appropriate. Here are three easy and delicious champagne cocktails to make your next get together that much more special:
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 bottle of champagne
In a pitcher, combine juices then add champagne and gently stir. Garnish with cranberries and orange slices.
- 1.5 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
- .33 oz Texas wildflower honey
- .25 oz fresh lemon juice
- 3 oz champagne
Combine vodka, honey and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and then strain into a champagne flute. Top with champagne and garnish with a strawberry or lemon. Recipe courtesy of Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
Mojito Champagne Cocktail
