5 best sparkling wine cocktail for holidays

Sparkling wine is synonymous with celebration, so it’s no surprise that sparkling cocktails can pull your holiday event together with a simple pour, stir, and twist. Whether you’re hosting a spirited brunch or an evening affair, feel free to play around with different types of sparkling wine, but keep your grand cru Champagnes in the chiller.

 

1. French 75

The French 75 is a classic Champagne cocktail: traditional, elegant, and best suited for a cocktail party.

 

2. Persimmon Champagne Cocktail

The persimmons and rosemary make this a lovely, complex little cocktail. The floral and herbaceous notes are wonderful on a chilly winter’s eve.

 

3. Marasca Fizz

The bobbing cherries make this sweet cocktail feel extra playful. It would definitely be a crowd-pleaser at a party, but there’s no reason you couldn’t make some with a few friends for an evening in.

 

4. Pom Kir Royal

Pomegranates are one of the best reasons to look forward to winter. This cocktail is perfect for the season, and it’s a cinch to create. If you can’t find crème de cassis (black currant liqueur), you could substitute any pomegranate juice that you like.

 

5. Death in the P.M.

 

Be careful! Even though this drink feels light, it’s a potent blend. It was purportedly created by Ernest Hemingway, and it’s sure to liven up any party.
