New Year’s Eve usually features plenty of champagne. If you’re looking to ring in the New Year with a little extra kick, consider upping your drink game with one of these four champagne cocktails.

French 75

Remarkably smooth, the French 75 features a mixture of champagne, gin, lemon juice and simple syrup. Drink this one slowly. While delicious, it’ll definitely sneak up on you.


Champagne Margarita

It’s like a mini-margarita topped with champagne. What’s not to love?!


Black Velvet

A Black Velvet is a mix of Irish Stout beer and a brut champagne. Definitely a great champagne cocktail for beer lovers!



A Barbotage is a mixture of cognac and orange liqueur topped with a brut champagne. Garnished with a lemon peal, it’s a perfect mixture of fizzy citrus goodness.
