How to Make a Champagne Cocktail

I love how easy this champagne cocktail is. You can even make it for a crowd.

Adding the sparkling wine (or champagne).

Make it by adding vodka, orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker filled to the brim with ice. Or if you are making for a crowd, add enough for multiple people to a large pitcher, stir and refrigerate until cold. Then divide the vodka mixture between glasses and finish with chilled sparkling wine (or champagne).

Sparkling wine buying guide: Use a dry sparkling wine, not sweet. We usually will spend $12 to $15 on the sparkling wine we add to our mimosas. Your best bet is to look for “Cava,” which comes from Spain or an American sparkling wine that’s around $15. A dry Prosecco is a great option, too. Unless you’ve found something you absolutely love, don’t go lower than $10 as that could lead to headache central.

Champagne Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

  • PREP

A light and sparkling take on one of our favorite cocktails, the cosmopolitan. Tips for making this for a crowd are below. If you prefer slightly sweeter cocktails, consider add dash of simple syrup to the cocktail. One 750-ml bottle of champagne will serve 10 to 12 people.

Makes 1 drink

You Will Need

1 1/2 ounces vodka (we like Stoli, Grey Goose and Ketel One)

1/2 ounce triple sec or Grand Marnier

1/2 ounce cranberry juice

1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

Dash simple syrup or agave, as needed, see our recipe for making simple syrup


2 ounces chilled dry champagne or sparkling wine


    Combine vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, lime juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until very cold. Taste and if the mixture seems to tart, add a dash of simple syrup or agave.

    Pour into a chilled martini glass then top with champagne or sparkling wine.

Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • Make multiple drinks: If you are making for a crowd, add enough of the vodka mixture without the champagne for multiple people to a large pitcher, stir and refrigerate until cold. When you are ready to serve, divide between glasses and finish with chilled sparkling wine (or champagne).

    • Joanne January 7, 2014, 11:35 am

      They were cranberries. You could also use blueberries or raspberries.
