Champagne Cocktail

The recipe for the classic and simple champagne cocktail. A drink to be enjoyed on any occasion, weddings, celebrations, brunch and more!
I love nothing better than a classic champagne cocktail. It’s just such a simple, classy drink you can have on any occasion. It’s festive, it’s a way to kick off a weekend, accompany a yummy brunch or toast a celebration! You can see all my cocktail recipes here, for all seasons and occasions.

You of course don’t have to use champagne in a champagne cocktail. To make it a more affordable option, use prosecco, affordable champagne, cava or any other dry sparkler. I for one, do not have a vintage champagne just lying around my home. Prosecco or cava is generally my go to in the sparkling beverage aisle.

You literally just need champagne (or other sparkly choice), a sugar cube and bitters. That’s it! 3 ingredients plus lemon peel for garnish. I wasn’t lying when I said a simple drink to make.

    That sounds really good! I think my husband would really like this, too. I’m going to have to make us some.

    I can imagine this is a fun beverage to have at a party. I love how the lemon peel looks in the glass.

    Sometimes the garnish makes the cocktail and in this case that long lemon peel really does it for me!

    My husband and I love champagne, but we haven’t found a good mixing recipe to try with it. This might be the winner that we are looking for.

    I love ordering craft or customized cocktails at restaurants, but rarely make them at home. Lately, though I’ve been trying to come up with my own concoctions at home and this recipes sounds like a fun one to try.

    It’s not at all difficult to do. I love that it’s refreshing and perfect for the Spring weather. I’m sure this is going to be a hit if you’re ever hosting a party.

    Oooh looks like a great mix together. I actually love the taste of inexpensive champagne, so I’m golden with this mix! Hee hee.

    This sounds and looks delicious. I’m pregnant right now so I can’t try it but I wish I could. I’ll definitely save this for later though.

    Can’t have it today as it’s national beer day, but putting this in the “party ideas” folders for the summer! Sounds so good!

    I really like champagne.
    You’re right – this drink certainly looks easy to prepare.
    Yet I am very curious how it tastes – looks like I will be giving this one a try.

    I would love a champagne cocktail, they really are a classy affair and can make any occasion feel more sophisticated! I like the idea of making my own too x

  21. April 9, 2017 / 9:17 am

    This sounds delicious! I personally would never use real Champagne for a cocktail because I could never bring myself to change its taste, I drink it as is, BUT I’ll chuck anything in to cava or prosecco to make a tasty cocktail. Great post!

    I love champagne and I really love when it’s used in cocktails, they just feel more sophisticated to me. I think I actually have all these ingredients so I might have to celebrate the fact that it’s Sunday with a great cocktail!

    This sounds so good! Champagne coctails are my favorite. And seems pretty simple too… I will definitely give it a try!
