6 Simple but delicious Champagne Cocktails for New Year

Raise a toast to the New Year with a champagne cocktail that is sure to tantalise your taste buds. Whether you are a fizz fan or prefer your spirits, we have found six cocktails that will bring all the flavours together, in one celebratory mix. We have matched each one with the perfect Dartington Crystal glass to complete the experience in style.

The Christmas Cocktail

Let’s start with one you could roll out in the run-up to New Year’s Eve too! The Christmas Cocktail is packed with spicy flavour making it the perfect festive blend. Use a citrus fruit for extra aromatics!

Ingredients

  • 1 glass Veuve Clicquot Rich Champagne
  • 1 slice ginger
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Ice

The Method

To make this simple champagne cocktail, all you have to do is add five ice cubes to a wine glass, followed by a slice of raw ginger and a cinnamon stick. Finish by pouring champagne over the top and voila you have a spicy champagne cocktail to ring in the New Year!

Pink Gn Fizz

With pink gin all the craze at the moment, why not play it safe and choose something you know your guests will love?

The Method

This is another super easy cocktail to help save time if you are hosting a large group of friends. Just combine one-part Malfy Gin Rosa with two parts Prosecco. This can be served in a Prosecco flute or a champagne saucer but why not try it in one of our Home Bar Coupe glasses. To finish off, garnish with thin grapefruit twist.

Whisky & Prosecco Cocktail

Get those hardened whisky drinkers raising a toast to the New Year with a celebratory whisky and Prosecco cocktail! With little shaking or stirring required, this simple cocktail won’t keep your guests waiting but will still look impressive.

Ingredients

  • 25ml Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Scotch whisky (or an alternative of choice)
  • 85ml Prosecco
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Orange twist (to garnish)

The Method

Start by dropping a sugar cube into a champagne flute to give it a lively fizz. Add the whisky, top with chilled Prosecco and garnish with an orange twist. The orange adds more to this cocktail than a visual delight. It will also bring a sharp citrus aroma to your first few sips.

Gin & Blood Orange Mimosa

A mimosa is traditionally served at brunch or during a formal event. However, we think it works at any other time of the day too. We've also put our own spin on the cocktail by serving it in a modern Gin Connoisseur Cocktail Glass instead of a tall champagne flute.

The Ingredients

  • 1 oz of vanilla blood orange syrup
  • 2 oz of gin
  • ¼ wedge of lime cut in half
  • 2 – 3 ice cubes
  • Prosecco to top up

The Method

Start by putting the lime into the middle of the cocktail shaker to release its juices. Add the blood orange syrup, gin and ice before shaking/stirring to chill. Next, strain into a glass and top with chilled Prosecco before garnishing with slices of blood orange.
