Earlier this week I shared a New Year’s Eve inspired Bubbly Station featuring lots of *high-impact-yet-totally-doable* creative ideas. (I just couldn’t find a one-word adjective that said all that.) 😆
Anyways, while champagne bars are fun for New Year’s Eve… so are crafted cocktails and signature drinks! With that in mind, I’ve got 2 champagne-based ideas for you today that are both festive AND easy to whip up. 🥂
The Cocktails Essentials line makes it easy for you to build scratch cocktails using the same ingredients as your favorite mixologists! 🍹🍸🏆 There are 13 Essentials flavors – including Mint Syrup, Agave Nectar, Grenadine, and more.
PLUS, the squeeze bottles make quick adjustments to your cocktails super easy (*a little more of this, a tad more of that*), and there’s no pouring mess. 🙌
Vodka Champagne Cocktail
- 1.5 oz vodka (1 shot)
- 1 oz Master of Mixes Simple Syrup
- 1 oz Master of Mixes Single Pressed Lemon Juice
- 6 oz Champagne (or sparkling wine)
Combine vodka, simple syrup, and lemon juice in an ice-filled shaker. Shake and strain into a glass. Top with champagne.
Sparkling Blue Eyes Cocktail
Ingredients: (Single Cocktail)
- 0.5 oz Master of Mixes Blue Curaçao
- 6 oz Champagne
- 1 dash Angostura Bitters
Build ingredients in order in champagne flute and stir.
Garnish: Blue Cotton Candy! (or orange wheel)
Sparkling Blue Eyes Party Punch
Makes 16 (8.5 oz) servings
- 2 cups Vodka
- 2 bottles Champagne
- 6 oz Master of Mixes Blue Curaçao
- 2 liters Lemon-lime soda
dashes of Angostura Bitters (to taste)*
Blue food coloring**
*You can leave the bitters off completely if you want to keep your punch on the sweeter side.
True Blue Cocktails
**True-blue cocktails are hard to come by! Master of Mixes Blue Curaçao has a gorgeous color that leans more aqua than royal blue. When you mix it with champagne or other yellow-hued ingredients, your drink will naturally turn more of a green-ish blue. So, if you want a royal blue or “true blue” color for this drink (especially when serving it as a punch), you’ll need to add some blue food coloring.
Cheers to the new year… and actually to a new DECADE this time around! 🥂🍾
