Why not up the ante and create some delicious champagne cocktails for the festive season?
These drinks are easy enough to make if you’re a beginner, and they also taste divine! Stock up on the essentials including fresh fruits, mint, rosemary and thyme for a great foundation to any cocktail drink.
Spiced Apple Cider Champagne
A yummy cocktail which contains cider, cinnamon, and champagne for truly unique flavour. Garnish with fresh mint leaves for a fresh-tasting drink during Christmas time.
Elderflower Champagne Cocktail
A refreshing drink which features a splash of St. Germain for that delicate texture and taste unlike no other. Serve with a slice of mint and cucumber to keep cool during the warmer months.
Raspberry and Black Pepper Champagne
Combine orange juice, raspberries, lemon wedges, thyme, raw sugar and champagne into a blender for 2-3 minutes on high speed. Sprinkle some black pepper over the top, and don’t forget to add a splash of vodka if you’re feeling particularly festive!
Blood Orange Bellini
Create a traditional bellini with a twist, by using blood orange for a rich and intense flavour. Combine the juice of four blood oranges, and your favourite bottle of Prosecco for a yummy cocktail.
Blackberry Champagne Cocktail
A sophisticated drink for a formal event or simply just a dinner party, a blackberry champagne cocktail is also really easy to make. Garnish the champagne glass with crushed sugar, and add two blackberries into the champagne to infuse the flavour.
