Start The New Year With Champagne – The Drink of Champions

Bubbly is one great alcohol for every celebratory situation, but where is the rule written that it’s only for parties and celebrations?  For 2016, we recommend these 5 delicious ways to incorporate Champagne in your everyday life. 

Air Mail

2 ounces rum – Caribbean Rum
1/2 ounce lime juice
1 teaspoon honey
5 ounces champagne

Mix thoroughly with cracked ice in a chilled cocktail shaker, then pour unstrained into Collins glass. Fill with champagne. (We recommend using Caribbean rum.)

Black Velvet

Fill a champagne flute (for a taller drink try a collins glass) halfway with Guinness.
Pouring over a spoon into the glass, fill to the top with Champagne.


1/2 ounce cognac
1 teaspoon Grand Marnier
4 ounces champagne

Pour cognac and Grand Marnier into a champagne flute, top up with champagne.

Atomic Cocktail

1 1/2 ounces vodka
1 1/2 ounces brandy
1 teaspoon sherry
1 1/2 ounces champagne

Stir the vodka, brandy, and sherry well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass and add 1 1/2 to 2 ounces cold champagne. Note: If you use the sweeter Spanish brandy, opt for the drier Amontillado sherry. Conversely, if you use the (dry) cognac, choose the (sweet) Oloroso. We strive for balance in all things.

Champagne Julep

4 oz Champagne
2 oz bourbon whiskey
1 tsp superfine sugar
6 mint leaves

Combine 4 mint leaves with the sugar and a few drops of water, and muddle well. Add the bourbon, and stir well. Strain into a collins glass, add ice cubes and the champagne. Garnish with 2 mint leaves, and serve.
