4 New Year’s Eve champagne drink ideas

A glass of champagne (or your favorite sparkling wine) is pretty much synonymous with New Year’s Eve.  But if you’re looking to add a new twist to the holiday staple, or picked up a bottle of champagne that’s not exactly the best tasting, I’ve got you covered!

I’m breaking down four of my favorite champagne drink ideas.

Add Chambord

Confession: I was inspired to write this post after buying a bottle of Chambord and then trying to figure out what to do with it. It’s a black raspberry liqueur that smells and tastes great, but it’s been challenging to pair with drinks. But a splash of Chambord in a glass of champagne is a nice touch.

You could also take it to the next level and make a Chambord spritz.

(St. Germain is also another popular liqueur choice, though I’ve never tried it)

Add fruit or even a fruit purée

No, this doesn’t mean your stuck making a Peach Bellini (though that’s not a bad idea either). There are all sorts of fruit purées you could add. Personally, mango or passion fruit catch my eye the most.

If you’re feeling lazy, you could always just toss in a few raspberries or pomegranate seeds and call it a day.

Add bitters

Bitters are an area where I don’t have too much experience yet, but I’m definitely very intrigued. I’ve had a bottle of Angostura Bitters sitting around forever, but have had no clue what to use it in. Apparently, champagne is a solid option, along with a sugar cube.

Add a sugar rim

Skip the extra alcohol and just elevate the literal glass of champagne by creating a sugar rim.

Oh– and on the topic of the new year. If you’re feeling a bit burned by 2020 and not inspired to make any New Year’s Resolutions, you could always try a ‘no-buy year’.
