I think we can all agree that a lot of people tend to have mixed feelings when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Whether you love to celebrate it or hate to even talk about it, whether you are single or madly in love, it is safe to say that one thing we can all use are some great cocktails. Here at Bar Magnolia, we will take any excuse to celebrate with a well crafted cocktail! Here are five of our favorite champagne cocktails to help you celebrate.
For your Galentine’s Celebration
Grab your girlfriends, pop the bubbly and don’t forget the bags of chocolate you know you bought at Target. This Raspberry Bellini is perfect for a girls night.
Pour 2 ounces of raspberry puree (or other fruit puree should you prefer that) and slowly top it off with4 ounces Champagne. Add a few raspberries for garnish.
For the Purist
You can never go wrong with this OG champagne cocktail, The Champagne Cocktail.
Place a sugar cube at the bottom of a champagne flute, and add 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters so that it saturates the sugar cube. Add one ounce of brandy, fill the rest of the flute with champagne and garnish with an orange peel or if you are feeling really fancy, a maraschino cherry.
For the Newly Engaged Bride
This well known cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate your first Valentine’s Day as a newly engaged bride-to-be!
Pour one ounce of peach schnapps and one ounce of grenadine into a champagne flute. Top with champagne and enjoy. Want to elevate the cocktail just a bit? Try adding 1 1/2 ounces St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and a few pomegranate seeds for a more sophisticated look.
For the Hopeless Romantic
This Sorbet & Champagne cocktail is just what you need to make a romantic toast over a candle lit dinner.
Put 1 teaspoon of sorbet (raspberry, peach, or whatever you like) at the bottom of the flute. Pour the champagne over the sorbet and stir, letting the sorbet dissolve into the champagne. Don’t forget to cheers!
The Not-So-Into-Champagne, Champagne Cocktail
Pour 1 1/2 ounces strawberry vodka, 3/4 ounce pear nectar, 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice and 1/2 ounce basil simple syrup into a wine glass filled with ice. Stir well. Top with champagne and garnish with a basil leaf, chopped strawberries or any other fruit that you like.
Whatever your celebration style is, Cheers!
