Champagne Cocktails!

Since it is the end of the year and most people stock up on Champagne to celebrate the new year,  I decided to share some Champagne cocktails with you to ring in the new year.   This is a “2 for” post, I have 2 great recipes you can make using champagne as your base.  bloody mimosa -champagne-cocktail pinnable

 

First up is a Bloody Mimosa, this has great hints of orange and lemon flavors with a splash of cherry.  Mr. DD and I were experimenting using a few of the flavors in our liquor cabinet.

 Next champagne cocktail is a Cherry Mimosa.  This tastes like the traditional mimosa with a touch of cherry.

We typically have mimosa for Christmas morning every year and this year we added the shot of cherry liqueur to give it a twist and I have to say I think this might become our new staple on Christmas morning.

My oldest step son’s birthday is New Years eve so we would opt to stay home and have a birthday party.  At midnight we would always toast the new year with a bottle of champagne.  We have become accustom to celebrating the new year at home with movies and the ball dropping.  I think it is safer to be home and not out driving in the madness.
