From a traditional French 75 to the cheekily-named Sudden Headache, these Champagne cocktails are perfect for any occasion


French 75

Mixologists around the world make this fizzy, lemony drink with gin, but New Orleans bartenders opt for cognac.

Champagne Mojitos

This puckery drink is prepared with rum and fresh mint like a classic mojito, but New Orleans chef John Besh makes it holiday-worthy by topping it with a splash of Champagne.

Hat Trick

This cocktail uses tart, vibrant rhubarb bitters.

Cork County Bubbles

Mixologist John Coltharp likes making this Champagne cocktail with herbal, woody Jameson 12-year Irish whiskey (made in Ireland’s County Cork).

Marasca Fizz

Southside Royale

Bartender Eric Alperin says that almost all great cocktails involve a few fundamental categories of flavor: strong, sweet, sour and bitter most commonly, plus the outliers floral, smoky and spicy (like cayenne pepper, a new drinks trend right now). The flavor building blocks for this champagne cocktail are: gin (strong), lime juice (sour), simple syrup (sweet), mint (floral).

Platinum Sparkle

For parties, Kathy Casey premixes the first four ingredients in large batches (3 parts vodka to 1 part each liqueur, Lillet and lemon juice). When she’s ready to pour, she fills a shaker with ice and 3 ounces of the mixture, shakes, strains into a glass and tops with Champagne.

Classic Champagne Cocktail

This classic cocktail is ideal for holiday parties and toasts.

Sour Cherry Yuzu Bellinis

Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s effervescent sour-cherry cocktail calls for yuzu juice (from the bumpy-skinned Japanese citrus fruit) for a citrus kick; a mix of tangerine and lime juices nearly matches yuzu’s flavor.

Amer Mousseux

Two bracing Italian liqueurs, Cynar and Campari, lend this quirky orange-accented sparkling cocktail a love-it-or-hate-it bitterness.
