A classy and simple champagne cocktail will brighten up any Memorial Day party. Make this to add some fizz to your start-of-the-summer blow out.

  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1-2 dashes of bitters
  • Champagne


Put the sugar cube into the flute, then the bitters. Top with Champagne (the bubbles will do the stirring).



Has always been one of my favorites. Great way to test a bartender and see if they know their stuff. Amazing how many try to give me a Kir Royale instead which is not AT ALL the same.

One of my favorites, but, to make it even better, before adding the champagne, add about an inch of Lillet (a French aperitif wine) to the glass and then fill with champagne.

This is my "go-to" cocktail! Simply perfect!! Classy too!

I couldn't find bitters - so I used candied ginger in lieu of the sugar & bitters.

This is a classic champagen cocktail, however, just to give it a bit more of a kick add a nip of brandy to the glass as well as the Bitters & sugar cube.(good french brandy if you have it) Voila, you have the Classic French Champagne Cocktail - French ❵.

The very best and simple to make. Always my drink of choice for a special occasion.

Note that some people tend to mistype champagne as champange with the N first. I type pretty quickly and for some reason I tend to do this fairly frequently. If you see any champange entry in these pages please let me know, so I can fix them! :)

Champagne Cocktail Recipe

For many people New Year's Eve means breaking out the bubbly, but all too often the bottles are kept socked away until midnight. That's a shame. Good Champagne and other sparkling wines are great to enjoy throughout the evening (in moderation, of course). And as a bonus, modest wines easily take on a new, more luscious character with just a little help from the liquor cabinet.

Livening up a sparkling wine can be as easy as putting together a Champagne Cocktail, with a sugar cube to ensure a constant stream of bubbles, and bitters to add complexity. Simple to prepare, easy on the eyes and damn tasty to boot, the Champagne Cocktail is a pleasant way to dip into the bubbly while ringing in the new year.

Other ideas, if you're serving sparkling wine over the holiday and are looking for something new? Try perking up the drink by rinsing the glass with a teaspoon or so of good quality liqueur before pouring the wine. Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Rhum Clement Creole Shrubb will contribute a delicate orange quality to the drink, while a little apricot liqueur (Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot and Marie Brizard Apry are both good choices) gives the wine a special fruity twist. A splash of green Chartreuse gives the bubbly extra mystery, while a little crème de violette—Rothman & Winter is the choice here again—gives the drink an intriguing floral aspect. A little experimentation goes a long way just be sure to use a brut, or dry sparkling wine, since the liqueur will contribute enough sweetness to make the drink pleasant without veering into cloying.

If you’re having these as a pre dinner cocktail, you’d be right on theme serving them alongside Gougeres which are French cheese puffs. In fact, that’s exactly what we were served by our host when we stayed in a B&B in Burgundy called La Saura a couple of months ago! – Nagi x

How to Make a Champagne Cocktail:

  • 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 are my favorite juices for this version. I love their color and their flavor.
  • St. Germain or Raspberry Liqueur: St. Germain is floral and raspberry liqueur is fruity choose whichever you prefer (or any other liqueur of your choice). Tip: Buy small bottles of flavored liqueur 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!
  • Fruit Sorbet: If you want to make these cocktails extra fun and fancy, you can add a scoop of fruit sorbet right into each glass.

Use my recipe as a base and switch around the juice, liqueur and fruit garnishes to make your favorite version.

You can make this cocktail in a pitcher (drinks for a crowd!) or you can let each person assemble their own 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).

It should come as absolutely no surprise that I love, love, love a scoop of raspberry sorbet floating in my champagne. Is it a cocktail? Is it dessert? Yes and yes. And it’s amazing!

This cocktail is fantastic for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Pop open champagne to celebrate a birthday, promotion, or just because. Champagne feels like such a celebratory drink, but there is no reason that you can’t enjoy it anytime you want! 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! There is zero shame in standing at your kitchen counter, in your yoga pants, making yourself a champagne cocktail. Live your best life, people. Cheers!


How Many Glasses of Champagne Are In a Bottle?

It does depend on the size glass your pouring. If it&rsquos a typical champagne flute, you&rsquoll get about 5 glasses to one bottle. If you&rsquore pouring champagne in a wine glass like we do sometimes, you&rsquoll get around 4.

And when you make one of these festive champagne drinks for a party or around the holidays, you get to stretch that bottle of champagne out, so you&rsquore not breaking the bank!

Champagne Jell-O Shots

Technically not a drink, but these champagne jell-o shots are worth mentioning. These jell-o shots are SO darn pretty and festive, you just can&rsquot leave them off your holiday cocktail party list.

These jell-o shots are made with real champagne (or prosecco) and since they need to be made ahead of time for the jell-o to set, they are the perfect cocktail party treat!

Island Champagne Cocktail

These champagne drinks are going to steal the show at brunch! But don&rsquot be afraid to serve these cocktails for happy hour or any party &ndash New Year&rsquos Eve drinks need to be a little lighter so these Island Champagne Cocktails will do the trick! AND a little hair of the dog for New Year&rsquos drinks&hellipyou&rsquove got this.

Champagne Mule

This twist on a Moscow Mule will be a cocktail party favorite! We&rsquove swapped out the ginger beer for champagne, and it works so good you might not go back!

But we did keep a slight ginger flavor in this champagne drink by adding a ginger liquor too.

Apple Cider Mimosa

Mimosas aren&rsquot just for breakfast anymore! Although, breakfast cocktails are highly underrated in my opinion. Serve these delicious fall inspired mimosas for brunch cocktails or for happy hour.

It won&rsquot matter what time of day you serve these champagne mimosas, they&rsquore going to go down super easy.

Prosecco Holiday Pom Pom

This champagne drink looks as festive as it tastes! With pomegranate juice and fresh pomegranate seeds this cocktail looks perfect right next to the Christmas tree! And don&rsquot forget Christmas morning brunch!

Sparkling Fireball Apple Cider

This sparkling sangria recipe is always a hit! We make this cocktail so often, we even swap out the apple cider for natural apple juice if cider isn&rsquot available during the warmer months.

Although these days I find apple cider all year long, not just during the fall and winter seasons. Top this apple sangria off with your favorite bubbly and get the party started!

Champagne Margarita

Fresh lime juice and Christie&rsquos famous margarita recipe topped off with champagne. Who would have thought that champagne and tequila goes so well together?

Grapefruit Beer Bellini

Paired with a tasty grapefruit beer, this champagne drink is going to surprise you!

Champagne Sangria

You can make a champagne cocktail bar for making sangria! This is such a fun way to get your guests involved in making their own sangria cocktails. Christmas drinks or New Years Eve drinks can get a little out of hand at parties sometimes, so set up this Champagne Sangria bar and your guests can serve themselves!

Jam Toast Cocktail

Having a brunch? These champagne and jam cocktails are so fun to make, or serve as a champagne bar! Set out different types of good quality jam and let your guests pick their own flavors!

RumChata Creamsicle Champagne

These champagne cocktails are going to be the hit of your New Year&rsquos Day or Christmas morning brunch! This boozy version of a mimosa will get the day started off right!

Champagne Versus Prosecco

You can honestly use either sparkling wine variation for this recipe. Dealer’s choice. Since we’re adding lemon and maraschino, I wouldn’t waste expensive bottles of either. Just don’t use sparkling rosé or anything flavored.

This cocktail is in the same vein as the French 75. It’s slightly sweet, but not too sweet. The maraschino liqueur and fresh lemon lets you know you’re drinking more than just a glass of champagne. It feels fancy and is a nice change of pace from your regular old glass-o-champagne on New Year’s Eve.

So cheers to Kitchen Swagger’s 100th recipe and cheers to whatever you’re celebrating with us!

St. Germain Champagne Cocktail

This festive Champagne cocktail is simple, fun and sophisticated. If you don't have a bottle of St. Germain, a tasty elderflower liqueur, already on your bar, now's the time to add one.

There's an endless array of bubbles for you to choose from to clink with this New Year's Eve. From $ to $$, here's my bubbly brief to get you through the aisles with a little less stress.

Cava: It's a Spanish sparkling wine that usually has bigger bubbles and is typically dry (not sweet). it's perfect for big crowds and mixing into cocktails. About $10.

Prosecco: This Italian bubbly is similar to Cava in style but can be off-dry (a hint of sweetness) to completely dry (sometimes labeled Brut). It's also lovely for parties and bubbly drinks. About $15.

Cremant d'Alsace: This is the most like traditional Champagne, just produced a little farther north so it can't be called Champagne. It is French, tastes just like Champagne but can be had for a fraction of the price. About $20.

Sparkling wine: Typically it's bubbly wine made stateside, but can be labeled this way from other parts of the world including South America and Canada. It can be equally as sophisticated and fabulous to sip as French Champagne and can be found for $20 to $50 depending on the producer.

Champagne: According to some laws, and out of respect the only bubbly wine that can carry the name Champagne, this has to be made in the Champagne region of France. Prices range from $40 to over a $100. It's perfect for an intimate occasion, impressing your guests or a special gift.

When it comes to bubbly cocktails, I recommend Cava, Prosecco or a Cremant d'Alsace. Brut styles are my favorite — these are dry, no sweetness in the glass quaffs, giving you a nice neutral palate to start your drinks with.
