40 Champagne Cocktails To Enjoy Year-round

Champagne is ALWAYS a good idea.


New Year’s Eve may be far away, but it’s always a good time to celebrate something. What better way than with a little sparkling wine? Sure, drinking champagne (or prosecco) on its own is nice, but these fun cocktails (and jello shots!) add an even more festive air to any celebration. Check out our 40 recipes for inspiration, and get ready to pop some bottles.

And don’t worry—we know champagne can get a little pricey, so feel free to stock up on and use whatever sparkling wine you prefer for these cocktails. Just try and be mindful of whether they’re dry or sweet, and adjust any added sweeteners (like simple syrup) accordingly.

When it comes to champagne cocktails, we’re all about the mimosa. The best part about them? Once you know the ratio (it’s 4 parts sparkling wine to 1 part orange juice), you can get extra creative. Not a fan of OJ? Swap in lemonade, pomegranate juice, maraschino cherry juice… the possibilities are endless. Not downing bottomless mimosas for brunch? Then you can afford a cocktail that’s got a little more booze in it, like our peach bellinis (with added vanilla vodka) or pina colada mimosas (with added coconut rum).

Making drinks for a crowd? Nothing better than combining a whole bottle (or two or three) of bubbly with some juice or ice cream to really wow your guests. Try our brunch punch (with pineapple and orange juice) or our peach prosecco punch (with a little seltzer added so it’s not so boozy).

Classic Mimosa

Nothing kicks off brunch quite like a mimosa! If you prefer your cocktails on the sweeter side, bump up the orange juice to 3 ounces per glass, or go for a sweeter bottle of bubbly. To play up the orange flavor, try adding a dash of orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau, or a few dashes of orange bitters.

Apple Cider Mimosas

As the weather gets colder and start looking towards more comforting, autumnal flavors, there is something weird about drinking a bright, citrusy cocktail on a gray morning in November. Enter the Apple Cider Mimosa. It is the perfect, fall twist on the classic and gives you another reason to celebrate the season. We especially love the cinnamon-sugar rim.
