Champagne is a given on New Year’s Eve. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with it! Adding gin, tequila or whisky takes your champagne over the top. And the addition of berries, pears, and pomegranates or seasonal flavors of vanilla and eggnog, sweetens things up. This year, serve party goers a twist on a glass of champagne with a champagne cocktail instead. Cheers!
