5 champagne cocktails perfect for NYE
Pomegranate Champagne CocktailHealthy cooking aficionado Ellie Krieger brings us a simple yet oh-so-delicious champagne concoction. Here’s a tip: because this recipe is so simple, don't omit the pomegranate arils. And while it may sound fan-cay (our “fancy” word for fancy), you can easily find these babies at any health food store.
Ginger Champagne CocktailAlthough this cocktail requires a little bit of work, we think the health benefits (of the ginger, that is) outweigh the fact that you'll be slaving over a hot stove. OK fine, maybe simmering for 15 minutes isn't exactly “slaving,” but hey — we never said we were patient (at least when it comes to cocktails).
Cosmopolitan Champagne CocktailHow can you not love a drink that combines two of our fave classic drinks, Cosmopolitans and champagne! We like to think of it as Carrie Bradshaw meets Heather Dubrow of The Real Housewives of Orange County (girlfriend loves her champagne!).
Prosecco SparklerListen up, ladies! Because if you have yet to try prosecco, you are missing the boat (speaking of boats, if you are on a boat right now, we totally hate you). Seriously, this drink uses fresh mint and lavender — stick a straw in us, we're done!
