Are you ready to pop open that bottle of bubbly and celebrate? Whether it’s Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, a weekend brunch, happy hour at home, or a casual get-together with friends, a bottle of Champagne is perfect for any occasion. 

We all know Champagne is fantastic on its own, but it’s even better as a cocktail to raise a toast to with friends and family. And if you don’t have a bottle of Champagne at home, you can use other varieties of sparkling wine, such as Prosecco (it isn’t just cheap Champagne!) and Cava.

From classic drinks like the French 75 and Kir Royale, to fun and fizzy pitcher cocktails for a crowd, our Champagne cocktails make every moment a toast-worthy celebration.
