If for some reason you still have bottles of champagne leftover from New Year’s Eve and not a whole bunch to celebrate, you’ve come to the right place. Unfairly, champagne gets pushed to the realm of holidays and special occasions when, really, we should be drinking that shit all day e’eryday and in all of our fav cocktails.
So, to celebrate literally nothing expect the fact that we’re like skinny and really pretty, here are four super fucking easy champagne cocktails to keep you drunk and happy until spring:
Place a sugar cube in a chilled champagne flute and throw in 3 dashes of Angostura bitters. Fill the glass with champagne and squeeze a lemon twist over the top. Voila – you’re so classic and tres chic, betch.
In a mixer, stir together 1 ½ oz. vodka, 1 ½ oz. brandy (we recommend cognac), and 1 tsp sherry with some ice. Strain that shit into a chilled cocktail glass and add 2 oz. cold brut champagne. Sip and judge everyone around you.
Aww, healthy betch loves fruit! Pour 1 oz. chilled pomegranate juice (POM, obviously) into a champagne flute. Slowly add about 3 oz. of champagne, then garnish the whole thing with about 1 tsp of pomegranate seeds. So presh.
Need to impress friends? To make four cocktails, grab four champagne flutes and add 1 oz. of gin to each. Follow that up with 2 oz. of simple blackberry syrup (make that shit by boiling 1 cup of blackberries with 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar until it’s all pink and red, drain, then cool). Fill the rest of the glass to the top with brut champagne. God you’re so fancy.
