Champagne Cocktails & Drink Recipes

Prosecco is great and all. But there’s something so special about popping a bottle of bubbly.

It adds fancy flair your just don’t get with sparkling wine.

That said, some of the Champagne cocktails call for Prosecco. But really, they’re totally interchangeable! So, if you see Prosecco, substitute Champagne instead.

1. Classic Champagne Cocktail

Are you looking for a sweet, bubbly drink for New Year’s Eve? This classic Champagne cocktail is the one you want.

It’s quick and easy and requires only Champagne, a sugar cube, Angostura bitters, and a lemon twist.

Best of all, it looks (and tastes) phenomenal. Just take a look at that flute glass – bubbles, bubbles everywhere!

2. Kir Royale

Who doesn’t love a crisp, tart cocktail that comes together in mere SECONDS? I know I do!

The Kir Royale is a bubbly, raspberry-infused delight with real raspberries in every Champagne flute!

It’s fruity and refreshing, with a slight bite to keep you on your toes. Despite its lovely appearance, it’s not overly sweet, either.

3. Empress Gin French 75

This stunning pink and purple spritz looks like a colorful sunset over the sea. I am absolutely in love with it from appearance alone.

Seriously, this cocktail is Instagram-worthy!

Its remarkable appearance should be enough to make you love it. If it isn’t, though, its strong, sweet, citrus taste will be.

4. Apple Cider Mimosa

Apple cider mimosas.

Let me say that again for those of you in the back.

Apple. Cider. Mimosas.

I don’t know who invented them, but that person deserves all the awards and medals.

If you’re addicted to fall flavors like I am, this is the only drink you’ll need. You’ll love it, and your party guests will, too!

5. Christmas St-Germain Spritz

Also known as the Poinsettia Spritz Punch, this drink is perfect for your holiday party.

It features an intoxicating (pun totally intended) blend of St. Germain, vodka, Champagne, and cranberry juice.

Add some fresh cranberries, orange slices, and rosemary to serve, and it’ll look as good as it tastes.

6. Negroni Sbagliato

Are you a fan of the crisp, biting Negroni? If so, you’ll love its lighter, more playful cousin, the Negroni Sbagliato.

It features primarily the same ingredients. However, instead of gin, you’ll add Champagne or Prosecco.

It’s a nice, festive little touch that also makes the drink less potent. Perfect for when you want to feel good without going overboard.

7. Mimosa Margarita

Mimosa Margaritas are tart, tangy, and right on the border of being sour. In short, they’re pretty great.

These hybrid Champagne cocktail recipes are for those who like to turn brunch into more of a party.

To make these bright cocktails, you’ll need a few things. (Triple sec, tequila, lime juice, Champagne, orange juice, and fruit slices.)

Serve them in flute glasses, and get the party started.

8. Tiffany Mimosa

If you love the insanely, almost ultraviolet blue hue of Blue Curacao, this is the cocktail for you.

Plus, it’s tartly sweet and looks like a million bucks!

It has a lemonade and Champagne base. Then, you’ll add a bit of blue curacao, honey, and sugar sprinkles for the rim.

It’s one drink that’ll wow the whole crowd. It’s the perfect New Year’s Eve cocktail!

You won’t find many people who won’t appreciate this one.

There’s nothing quite like the frothy, tongue-tingling top of a Peach Bellini. It’s a thick, fruity cocktail with plenty of peach and raspberry flavor.

15. Black Velvet

It’s hard to believe Guinness beer and Champagne could make such a rich, tasty combination. But they do.

Give it a try, and you’ll see what I mean.

The Black Velvet gets its name from its luscious, velvety texture and stunning hue.

Boasting a complex taste profile, it’s an easy way to transform a humble glass of beer. It’s both refreshing and luxurious.

16. Blackberry Champagne Mule

First and foremost, you’ll love this drink because it’s strikingly beautiful.

However, you’ll also love its taste. Especially if you prefer cocktails with spicier, less sweet flavors.

The Champagne lends some sweetness to the Mule. But the blackberries’ tartness and the lime’s tanginess balance that nicely.

Finally, the mint and ginger beer add another depth of fresh, earthy flavor. It’s an entirely unique but flavorful drink.

17. Caramel Apple Mimosa

Caramel apple Mimosas may look like regular Mimosas, but their taste is 100% different.

These are excellent options for any fall get-together.

The caramel sauce, brown sugar, and cinnamon on the rim add a rich, sweet, spiced tingle to every sip. And the caramel apple flavor is exceptionally good.

If fall flavors are your favorite, there’s nothing about this drink you won’t love.

19. Aperol Spritz

If you’ve ever visited Italy, you’ve probably seen the Aperol Spritz a lot. It’s been trending over there for the last few years, and for good reason!

Its brilliant, bright orange color is lovely. And its light, dry flavor is one almost no one can turn down.

If you’re looking for something cool and refreshing, you’ll need to try the Aperol Spritz.

20. Tequila Sunrise Mimosa

This five-ingredient, 5-minute Mimosa features a beautiful, multi-color sunrise appearance. And equal parts tequila and Champagne!

Surprisingly, that combo is really good once you add the orange juice and grenadine.

It’s tangy with a light sweetness. The tequila comes through just enough to let you know it’s there.

It’s also a relatively strong drink. If you want to get tipsy quickly, this cocktail can get you there.

21. Pineapple Dole Whip Mimosa

The one thing that most Champagne cocktails are not is creamy. This delightful Pineapple Dole Whip Mimosa is the exception to the rule.

It’s thick, creamy, and full of pineapple yumminess. It’ll have you dreaming of the beach and the waves crashing over your toes.

22. Limoncello Champagne Cocktail

If you love the light brightness of lemon cocktails, you’ll appreciate this one. It’s wonderfully bubbly and overflowing with tart citrus flavor.

It’s also deceptively strong once you add the optional gin or vodka. It’s the kind of drink that makes me break out one of my favorite phrases.

It’s dangerously drinkable.

23. Bourbon and Champagne Cocktail

Bourbon and Champagne aren’t two ingredients you often find together. It’s kind of like black and white or up and down.

They’re two distinctly opposing things.

But black and white make gray and up and down meet in the middle. So, too, do these two spirits combine to create something magical.

Just try it. You won’t believe me otherwise.

Of all the Champagne cocktails out there, the classic Peach Bellini is one of my favorites. It’s gently sweet, bubbly, and delicious.

Instructions

  • Fill each Champagne flute 3/4 full of chilled peach puree.
  • While slowly tilting the flute, slowly pour in the Prosecco. Gently mix to combine the two ingredients.
