You might think the recipe for the classic champagne cocktail couldn't possibly be improved upon, but there are actually many creative spins on the traditional champagne cocktail that will make your own head spin...in a good way.
That's right. For those that aren't aware, cucumbers and alcohol get along swimmingly. You'll need one shot of cucumber liqueur, one shot of Midori, and one part very dry champagne. Add the cucumber liqueur and the Midori to a champagne flute, and then top with champagne. This is an astonishingly refreshing drink that infuses a welcome chill into a hot summer night.
Champagne cocktails beget sake champagne cocktails, which beget a hundred different versions. The Koi Fish Sake Champagne Cocktail, a lovely, bubbling, burnt sienna color, is made with a shot of sake, a shot tangerine liqueur, and champagne. Add sake to a champagne flute, pour in the tangerine liqueur, and top it off with the champagne.
3 ounces of Hpnotiq and 3 ounces of Giovello Prosecco splashed into a champagne glass create this sparkling aqua wonder.
You'll need .75 ounces plum wine, .25 ounces of vanilla syrup and chilled champagne. Put the plum wine into the glass and add the vanilla. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne.
This one needs to come with a caution label. Toss a dash of simple syrup, two splashes of lemon juice, and an ounce of gin into a flute, and top it all off with champagne.
Golden Herbs Champagne Cocktail
This is the drink you drink when you want to fool yourself into believing that you really are drinking to your good health. It's a mix of the super secret recipe herb-infused Chartreuse (the yellow label, not the green) and champagne.
