Champagne Cocktails To Impress Your Guests

We’ve all watched the movies with guests clad in finery sipping from champagne flutes as live bands play in the background, and patrons dance with all the skill of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Those shimmering vessels filled with golden sparkling liquid, catching the light just right to make it feel like the whole room is drinking diamonds. Yes, champagne has been a marker of class and style since its beginnings, and books and films have done everything to perpetuate its appeal as a spirit of special appeal and celebration. But what about putting a different twist on this classy effervescent bit of golden magic? Here are some variations you can play with to create your own magical cocktails from an already sought-after beverage. Become the kind of mixologist that even the Great Gatsby would envy with these simple twists on drinking champagne.

Classic Champagne Cocktail

Take 1 sugar cube and drop it into a champagne flute/glass and cover with 3 drops of angostura bitters. Top your Luc Belaire Champagne with 25ml of Hennessey VS Cognac, and then slowly fill the rest of your champagne flute/glass. 

  • 1 sugar cube
  • 3 drops of angostura bitters
  • 25 ml of Hennessey VS Cognac
  • 100 ml Luc Belaire Champagne

Pomegranate Champagne Spritzer

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, and then add the pomegranate liqueur and orange juice. Shake these two ingredients well, then remove the lid and slowly add your Luc Belaire Champagne into the shaker. Gently stir these 3 things until well mixed, and then strain into a champagne glass. Now you squeeze the juice from your orange wedge onto your orange peel twist. Pour the teaspoon of sugar onto a plate, or in a small bowl, and then roll the orange peel twist in the sugar until thoroughly coated. Now float your sugar-coated orange twist in your pomegranate cocktail. 

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 2 ozs of pomegranate liqueur
  • 2 ozs of Luc Belaire Champagne
  • 1 oz of orange juice
  • 1 orange wedge
  • 1 orange peel twist
  • 1 teaspoon of white sugar
