Champagne Cocktails For Valentine’s Day

February 12, 2019

Champagne is one of my favorite wines and ways to celebrate and as we approach Valentine’s Day I thought it would be fun to look at a few versions of Champagne Cocktails. Champagne cocktails are when you combine Champagne with other wines or liqueurs to create something completely new. The first Champagne Cocktail I ever had was served at a friend’s house many years ago and was Champagne, Angostura Bitters on a sugar cube, drop the sugar cube into a Champagne glass and add the Champagne. Very good. Today there are lots of versions of a Champagne cocktail, some involve Brandy or other flavored liqueurs. Whatever recipe you prefer, have one or two this Valentine’s Day and Enjoy!!!

Here’s the recipe for a Grand Royal which uses Grand Marnier with Champagne. 

Ernest Hemingway’s Death In The Afternoon sounds not only yummy but dangerous. 

A French 75 adds a little gin and lemon juice to the Champagne mix. 

A Barbotage adds brandy to the already delicious Champagne, Grand Mariner mixture.

And above is a great little video from featuring how to make the traditional Champagne Cocktail as well as a special recipe from the featured bartender. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at Champagne cocktails and hopefully, they’ll find their way onto your Valentine’s Day menu whether your dining out or eating at home. Enjoy!!!
