With the year coming to and end I thought I would share a couple of my favorite Champagne cocktails with you. Champagne is a variety of sparkling wine from the Champagne region in France – you can use just sparkling wine in these recipes as Champagne has come synonymous with sparkling wine nowadays.

Drop sugar cube into bottom of a chilled Champagne flute. Drop 2 to 3 dashes of bitters onto the cube. Fill with the Champagne. Garnish with the lemon twist. Cheers!

  • 1 part fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 to 1 part Champagne (as you like)

Pour ingredients into Champagne flute and enjoy! This is a favorite of mine anytime. It is a nice twist for those of you (like me) who drink screwdrivers. This is also nice for New Year’s Day Brunch!

Happy New Year!
