23 Classic Champagne Cocktails

I love champagne cocktails because they’re so elegant and attractive, and they work well for just about every occasion you could imagine. 

If you’re looking for a drink that’s perfect for Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or your 21st birthday party, you just can’t beat champagne cocktails.

With 23 of my favorites to choose from, you’ll certainly have many options. Who knows? You might just find your new favorite on here, too. 

Pro tip: some of the champagne cocktail recipes here call for prosecco.

Great news – the two drinks are totally interchangeable! So anywhere you see prosecco, feel free to substitute champagne instead.

Champagne Cocktails & Drink Recipes

1. Classic Champagne Cocktail

If you’re looking for a sweet & bubbly champagne for New Year’s Eve, the classic champagne cocktail is the one you want. 

It’s quick, easy, and requires only champagne, a sugar cube, Angostura bitters, and a lemon twist.

The best part is, it looks (and tastes) phenomenal. Just take a look at that flute glass – bubbles, bubbles everywhere!

Ingredients: dry champagne, lemon, Angostura bitters, sugar cube

2. French 75 Cocktail

This sparkly, citrusy treat is just as light and fruity as any cocktail on this list.

But don’t be fooled by those innocent bubbles in the flute glass – this cocktail packs a punch. (Thank you, one and a half ounces of gin!)

It has a gentle sweetness to it, but there’s a tart lemony flavor that makes it incredibly refreshing, as well.

If you’re looking for a delightfully fizzy summer spritz, give this one a try. 

Ingredients: champagne, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, lemon twist

3. Empress 75

This stunning pink and purple spritz looks like a colorful sunset over the sea, and I am absolutely in love with it. 

Seriously, this cocktail is Instagram worthy!

If somehow its remarkable appearance isn’t enough to make you love it, maybe the strong, sweet, citrus taste will be.

Ingredients: champagne, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, lemon twist

4. Apple Cider Mimosa

Apple cider mimosas. 

Let me say that one more time for those of you in the back. 

Apple. Cider. Mimosas. 

I don’t know who invented them, but that person deserves all the awards and medals.

If you’re addicted to fall flavors like I am, this is the only drink you’ll need. 

Ingredients: champagne, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, lemon twist

5. Orange Mimosa

I can’t forget the traditional mimosas, of course.

Their bright orange color and tart and tangy orange juice flavor make them the perfect additions to any breakfast or brunch. 

Ingredients: champagne, orange juice

6. Orange Creamsicle Mimosa 

The orange creamsicle mimosa is a lot like the regular orange mimosa.

However, it’s creamier, sweeter, and tastes like those amazing orange push-up popsicles we loved when we were kids.

Ingredients: champagne, orange juice, heavy cream, sugar

7. Mimosa Margarita

Mimosa margaritas are tart, tangy, and are right on the border of being downright sour. In short, they’re pretty great.  

These hybrid champagne cocktail recipes are for those of us who like to turn brunch into a little more of a party. 

To make these bright cocktails, you’ll need triple sec, tequila, a splash of lime juice, champagne, orange juice, and lime and orange slices. 

Serve them in flute glasses and let’s get the party started.

Ingredients: champagne, triple sec, tequila, lime juice, orange juice

8. Tiffany Mimosa

If you love the insanely, almost ultraviolet blue hue you get from blue curacao liqueur, this is the cocktail for you. (Plus, it’s tartly sweet and looks like a million bucks!)

It has a lemonade and champagne base, and you’ll add a bit of blue curacao, honey, and sugar sprinkles for the rim.

This is one drink that will wow the whole crowd – perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Ingredients: champagne, Blue Curacao liqueur, lemonade, corn syrup, sugar sprinkles

9. Strawberry Champagne

This drink is for anyone who likes a little chunkiness in their cocktails. The pureed strawberries certainly add that. 

Plus, between them and the champagne, you’ll have one seriously sweet and fruity drink.

If it’s a bit too sweet to suit your tastes, add an extra splash of lemon juice to help tone that down some.

Ingredients: champagne, lemon juice, strawberries

10. Peach Bellini

There’s nothing quite like the frothy, tongue-tingling top of a peach bellini.

It’s a thick, fruity cocktail with plenty of peach and raspberry flavor. 

The recipe calls for prosecco, but as I’ve already mentioned, you can easily substitute your favorite bottle of champagne instead. 

Ingredients: prosecco, champagne, or sparkling wine, peach, raspberries, water

11. Strawberry Lemonade Bellini

If you’re looking for a cocktail that’ll liven up your table, you can’t beat the strawberry lemonade bellini.

It’s gorgeous and looks like a warm sunset on the beach. 

It’s also fruity, tasty, and full of chunky, slushy yumminess.

All you’ll need to make it are frozen strawberries, lemonade, champagne, and fresh strawberries for garnishes. 

Be sure to serve bellini in flute glasses for a prettier presentation!

Ingredients: prosecco or sparkling wine, lemonade, strawberries

12. Raspberry Mimosa

I’m honestly not sure what you’ll love most about this drink – the part where it takes only 5 minutes and four ingredients to make or its amazing tart, raspberry flavor.

Whatever it is, it’ll definitely have you coming back for more. 

Ingredients: champagne, raspberry sorbet, grenadine, raspberries

13. Watermelon Mimosa

These bubbly mimosas are just as fantastic as the raspberry ones above, but they’re sweeter.

Also, they’re even easier to make, requiring only two ingredients: watermelon and champagne.

The watermelon flavor is pretty mild, so if the alcohol packs too much of a punch, add some simple syrup to help mask it.

Ingredients: champagne, watermelon, simple syrup

14. Strawberry Champagne Margaritas

Want to know the only thing better than a strawberry margarita?

How about a strawberry champagne margarita stuffed with fresh mint and chunky pieces of chilled fruit at the bottom?

This drink is sweet, tangy, salty, and perfect. It hits just about every single taste bud on your tongue and leaves you with a delightful buzz after just one drink. 

Ingredients: champagne, lime juice, triple sec, tequila, strawberries lime zest, salt, crushed ice, mint

15. Black Velvet

It’s hard to believe Guinness beer and champagne could make such a rich, tasty combination, but they do. Give it a try, and you’ll see what I mean.  

The Black Velvet gets its name from its luscious, velvety texture and stunning black velvet-like hue.

To make, pour Guinness into a flute glass. Slowly add champagne or sparkling wine on top to create a delicious blend of sweet & bitter flavors. 

Boasting a complex taste profile that’s both refreshing & luxurious, it’s an easy way to transform a humble glass of beer.

Ingredients: champagne, Guinness beer

16. Blackberry Champagne Mule

First and foremost, you’ll love this drink because it’s strikingly beautiful.

However, you’ll also love its taste, especially if you prefer cocktails with spicier, less sweet flavors. 

The champagne lends some sweetness to the mule, but the blackberries’ tartness and the lime’s tanginess balance that out nicely. 

Finally, the mint and ginger beer add a whole other depth of fresh, earthy flavor, making this an entirely unique but flavorful drink. 

Ingredients: champagne, vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, blackberries, mint

17. Caramel Apple Mimosa

Caramel apple mimosas may look like regular orange mimosas, but their taste is 100% different. These are another excellent option for any fall get-together.

The caramel sauce, brown sugar, and cinnamon on the rim add a rich, sweet, spiced tingle to every sip. The caramel apple flavor of the drink is exceptionally good. 

If fall flavors are your favorite, there’s nothing about this drink that you won’t love. 

Ingredients: champagne, apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon, caramel apple dip, caramel beverage syrup, apple slices

18. Poinsettia Cocktail

This vibrantly red cocktail is the Christmas (or New Year’s Eve!) cocktail you didn’t know you needed.

You can whip it up in just 3 minutes with only three ingredients: orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and champagne.

Garnish the flute glass with fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary to make it look more festive, and sit back and let the compliments roll in. 

Ingredients: champagne, orange liqueur, cranberry juice, cranberries & rosemary sprig

19. Aperol Spritz

If you’ve ever visited Italy, you’ve probably seen Aperol spritz a lot.

It’s been trending over there for the last few years, and for good reason! Its brilliant, bright orange color is lovely. 

And its light, dry flavor is one that almost no one can turn down. If you’re looking for something cool and refreshing, you’ll need to try the Aperol spritz. 

Ingredients: prosecco or sparkling wine, Aperol, club soda, orange slice, ice

20. Tequila Sunrise Mimosa

This five-ingredient, 5-minute mimosa features a beautiful, multi-color sunrise appearance and equal parts tequila and champagne. 

Surprisingly, once you add the orange juice, grenadine syrup, and orange slices for a garnish, that combination is really good. 

It’s tangy with a light sweetness, and the tequila comes through just enough to let you know it’s in there. 

The best part is it’s a relatively strong drink. If you’re looking to get tipsy quick, this cocktail can get you there. 

Ingredients: champagne, tequila, orange juice, grenadine, orange slices

21. Pineapple Dole Whip Mimosa

The one thing that most champagne cocktails are not is creamy. This delightful pineapple dole whip mimosa is the exception to the rule. 

It’s thick, creamy, and full of pineapple yumminess that’ll have you dreaming of the beach and the waves crashing over your toes. 

Ingredients: prosecco or sparkling wine, pineapple juice, coconut milk, whipped topping & pineapple wedges

22. Strawberry Mimosa

Despite its fleshy pink appearance, the strawberry mimosa tastes remarkably similar to the traditional orange mimosa. 

The only difference is a bright burst of berry deliciousness underneath all the tangy orange flavor.

The drink requires only three ingredients and takes 5 minutes or less to make. 

These are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or lazy summer days beside the pool. 

Ingredients: prosecco or sparkling wine, orange juice, strawberries

23. Cranberry Mimosa

There’s just something about cocktails with deep, rich red colors that I love.

They’re ideal for the winter holidays, for one thing, but that’s not the only thing that makes them great. 

They’re just so stunningly gorgeous. And the vibrant red color looks fantastic against the shimmering sparkling sugar you’ll use to dust their rims. 

Luckily, this drink is more than just something pretty to look at.

It’s also delicious and incredibly easy to make. All you’ll need is cranberry juice, champagne, and a splash of orange liqueur. 

Ingredients: sparkling wine, cranberry juice, orange liqueur
