Whether it’s New Year’s Eve, your best friend’s birthday, or just a hot day in August, a sparkling wine cocktail is always appropriate. As we move away from the mentality that sparkles are only for celebrations, bubbly-based cocktails are popping up left and right — and we can’t get enough. We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite bubbly recipes to make year-round, no matter what the event is, because let’s face it, there’s really no occasion that doesn’t call for a sparkling wine-based cocktail.
Up your vodka-lemonade game with this Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade recipe. Simply add fresh fruit and top with Cava. Disclaimer: This could be your new summer addiction.
You know those recipes that are super simple, yet create the image that you slaved away for hours? Yep, that’s exactly what this Sparkling Purple Pineapple is. We recommend making this for your next girls’ night in to be the hostess with the mostest.
Sometimes you just have to stick with the classics; sugar, bitters, and Champagne. You really can’t go wrong.
Basically, if a Champagne Cocktail and Mimosa had a baby, you’d get this super refreshing Champagne Cocktail with a Citrus Twist. Step up your next at-home brunch game by serving a round (or few) of these.
Sadly, the Bellini often falls in the shadows of its orange juice-based cousin, the Mimosa. However, the juicy sweetness of the peach purée against the acidity of the sparkling wine is just as, if not more, satisfying.
Because there’s a little Carrie Bradshaw in all of us, right? Add a little more pizzazz to your simple Cosmopolitan by splashing a little Champagne in there; the tartness of both cranberry and lime juices plays gorgeously off the acidity of the sparkling wine.
When in doubt, the French 75 is always a safe bet. Simple to make, easy to drink, and all-around satisfying. A timeless classic.
