It’s Thirsty Thursday, which happens to be one of our favorite days of the week! Right before the weekend, everyone is in a good mood and ready to imbibe in some tasty cocktails. Well today we have a special Thirsty Thursday dedicated to the New Years Eve Queen of drinks…Champagne!
Now I realize not everyone is a champagne drinker. But I have some recipes that are sure to change your mind about the bubbly. Like a stronger drink that doesn’t look girly? You got it! Want something a little more fruit…it’s coming at ya. I hope you enjoy these recipes that include lots of tiny bubbles and are sure to make any New Years Eve party a blast!
See this one is easy. Just grab a glass, pour & consume! Well technically you don’t even need a glass. We don’t mind if you take it straight out of the bottle. We’ve been known to drink a bottle of Dom out of a brown paper bag in the back seat of a car. Good times!
Typically we reserve these for the morning after a big night out. But we’ll make an exception for New Years Eve.
- Orange Juice
Add a little more liquor to your mimosa with this twist!
- 1 oz Orange Juice
- 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
Feeling fruity and like raspberry?
- 1/2 oz Chambord
- Lemon Twist
This couldn’t sound anymore holiday appropriate. Tastes pretty good too, if your not totally sick of the taste of cranberry after having it for 3 straight days after Christmas!
- 1/2 oz Triple Sec
- 3 oz Champagne
- Fill with Cranberry Juice
Here’s one with a kick of Brandy!
- 1 1/4 oz Brandy
- 1 1/4 oz Sweet & Sour
- Fill with Champagne
- Lemon Twist in a tall glass
Now you have a few options going in to your New Years Eve party! Do you have a few favorite champagne drinks? We’d love to hear about them!
Have a very happy New Year!
