Champagne Cocktails | Signature Drink of the Month

Perfect for Brides on a Budget

My in-laws introduced me to Champagne Cocktails. It transforms a modest (so-called drinkable) champagne into something truly enjoyable with nothing more than a sugar cube and a dash of bitters.

You can use any modest, but drinkable Champagne for this. My family uses Cristalino Brut, which you can get for around $6 bucks a bottle.

Champagne Cocktails

Serve as during signature drink during cocktail hour or as your champagne toast.
