If you are looking for a special treat, why not spoil yourself with a Champagne cocktail? Perfect for any party or celebration, you’ll get a truly spectacular cocktail, along with all the taste of your favourite Champagne. To help you get started, give these ideas a try.

Traditional Champagne Cocktail

For the classic Champagne cocktail, add four drops of Angostura Bitters to a sugar cube in a Champagne flute. Pour on a dash of brandy and top up with Champagne. Then sit back and enjoy the taste sensation as it changes from dry to sweet.

Bellini

To make this famous fruity peach cocktail, add one-third peach purée to two-thirds Champagne. Mix together and enjoy!

Black Velvet

If you fancy a change from your usual pint of beer, try mixing Champagne with stout. Sounds an odd combination but try it and see. Simply add one half Champagne with one half stout. Guinness, in particular, works a treat.

Bucks Fizz

For a simple but refreshing cocktail, mix two parts Champagne with one part orange juice and serve.

Champagne Charlie

Mix a shot of apricot brandy with Champagne for the ultimate in Champagne cocktail sophistication.

Disco Fizz

For this super bright blue cocktail, add a dash of blue curacao, elderflower cordial, pineapple juice and lemon juice to a Champagne flute, and top up with Champagne.

Emma Peel

Pour a dash of pineapple juice into a shot of cherry brandy. Simply top up with Champagne and you’ll get the perfect summery cocktail.

Flirtini

There are a couple of ways of making this delicious cocktail but all of the recipes have similar ingredients. Try mixing vodka, cointreau and Champagne with pineapple juice, or triple sec, vodka and Champagne with cranberry juice and a squeeze of lemon. Not sure which one to go for? Why not try them both and see!

Kir Royal

This is a traditional favourite. Simply add Champagne to crème de cassis for a super-stylish and refreshing aperitif.

So you’ve got the ideas, now’s the time to test them out! Make sure you stock up on Champagne first, by visiting our website www(dot)virginwines(dot)com/champagne
