Champagne Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

We like our cocktails. Okay, we like our wine, too… but for New Year’s we firmly believe you need a cocktail. This champagne Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe will satisfy them all.

Picky drinkers, well they are dealt with the champagne … mixed drink people, they get vodka… and for those people that don’t want a “girly” drink, well…. again there is vodka AND champagne .. enough to make my head feel it a touch after one drink.

How to make a Champagne Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

Add vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and lime juice to a cocktail shaker filled to the brim with ice.

NOTE: Mix all of this before hand then keep it in t a pitcher in the fridge, your guests can pour the chilled mix into their glass and top with champagne when they are ready to drink. Make a big batch, you’ll need it.

Now, add the chilled champagne or “sparking wine”… you can totally go a little cheaper here, we did, anyway.

A light and sparkling take on one of our favorite cocktails, the cosmopolitan. Originally, we used dry sparkling wine for this and found it a little tart, so if you only have dry sparkling wine on hand add some super fine sugar or agave syrup until it tastes balanced. One 750-ml bottle of champagne will serve 4-6 people.

  • ice
  • 2 ounces champagne (on the sweeter side)

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