40 Champagne Cocktails To Sip All Year Long (And Not Just At Brunch)

Champagne is ALWAYS a good idea.

We'll take any excuse to celebrate something, and not just on New Year's Eve. So what better way to celebrate than with a little sparkling wine? Sure, drinking Champagne (or Cava and Prosecco) on its own is nice, but these fun cocktails (and Jell-O shots!) add an instantly festive air to any celebration. Check out our 40 recipes for inspiration, and get ready to pop some bottles!

And don’t worry—we know Champagne can get a little pricey, so feel free to stock up on and use whatever sparkling wine you prefer for these cocktails. Just try and be mindful of whether they’re dry or sweet, and adjust any added sweeteners (like simple syrup) accordingly.

When it comes to Champagne cocktails, we’re all about the mimosa. The best part about them? Once you know the ratio (it’s 4 parts sparkling wine to 1 part orange juice), you can get extra creative. Not a fan of OJ? Swap in lemonade, pomegranate juice, maraschino cherry juice… the possibilities are endless. Not downing bottomless mimosas for brunch? Then you can afford a cocktail that’s got a little more booze in it, like our peach bellinis (with added vanilla vodka) or piña colada mimosas (with added coconut rum).

Making drinks for a crowd? Nothing better than combining a whole bottle (or two or three) of bubbly with some juice or fizzy soda to really wow your guests. Try our brunch punch (with pineapple and orange juice) or our peach Prosecco punch (with a little seltzer added so it’s not so boozy).

Classic Mimosa

Nothing kicks off brunch quite like a mimosa! If you prefer your cocktails on the sweeter side, bump up the orange juice to 3 ounces per glass, or go for a sweeter bottle of bubbly. To play up the orange flavor, try adding a dash of orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau, or a few dashes of orange bitters.

French 75

The French 75 is among the fanciest of cocktails. Sure, there’s the tried-and-true margarita and the timeless Old-Fashioned, but the French 75 has got what those two don’t: Champagne! Champagne is what makes this drink distinctively French (and totally worth the splurge), but a more affordable sparkling wine such as Prosecco or Cava are both sound options. Make sure to squeeze the lemon twist into your drink to add some of those floral lemon oils.

Prosecco Mint Julep

This festive sparkling drink is perfect for a low-key holiday cocktail hour. A sort of lightened-up mint julep, the addition of a dry sparkling wine provides a pleasant brightness and effervescence that plays well with the rich, caramelized tones of bourbon whiskey.

Apple Cider Spritz

Easy breezy and ready for fall, this apple cider spritz offers a twist on a recent summer classic, the Aperol spritz. Waltzing right into the next season with spiced cider and a kiss of pumpkin spice, Aperol’s orange-herbal aspects bring out the best in the cider flavors. This totally sippable cocktail is great for a crowd too. To make a big batch, make a pitcher of the cider, Aperol, and pumpkin spice mix, then just add to glasses with ice, a garnish, and Prosecco for a cocktail as crisp and bright as the best fall day.

Christmas Punch

There’s no better way to liven up a holiday party than with a big pitcher of punch, and we love this punch any day of the year. This Christmas punch forgoes all the added sugar found in many punch recipes, and instead derives its natural sweetness from apple cider. Add some spice from ginger beer and tartness from unsweetened cranberry juice, and you have a sophisticated, festive punch for your next party.

Even in the dead of winter we still like to pretend we are on a beach sipping on piña colada. Since we can't actually do that most of time, this winterized version does the trick. With Prosecco, pineapple, and coconut milk, it's a cocktail that's festive and tropical all at the same time!

As the weather gets colder and start looking toward more comforting, autumnal flavors, there is something weird about drinking a bright, citrusy cocktail on a gray morning in November.
