Get ready for the best time of the year: New Year’s Eve! The parties start to gather, so be ready with some fun cocktails to bring in the New Year. A ‘Champagne Cocktail’ is definitely going to be a hit; it’s simple and delectable. All you do it place a sugar cube in a chilled champagne flute, lash it with 2-3 dashes of bitter (Angostura works great), fill the glass with Brut champagne or something cheaper, then squeeze a lemon twist on top. For a drink with a cool name, try ‘Air Mail.’ It’s made with 2 oz. golden rum, ½ oz. lime juice, 1 teaspoon of honey, and 5 ounces Brut champagne. To make it, you mix everything but the champagne with cracked ice in a chilled cocktail shaker, and then pour unstrained into Collins glass. Fill with champagne after. It tastes great, and it’s easy to make; your friends will love it.
You can’t have a party without the famous ‘Mimosa’ in hand; it’s a very common and fun drink that will have you smiling all night. You will fill a champagne flute 2/3 full of fresh squeezed orange juice and top it with Brut champagne. Add an orange wedge for a garnish. It’s basically a fancy and tastier orange juice. A ‘Black Velvet’ is super easy and great for anyone. Men more like this though. You’ll half-fill a Collins glass with stout and top up slowly with champagne. Make sure to stir it gently afterwards with a glass or plastic rod. It should look like medium-brown colored champagne. When you are ready to celebrate the New Year, make sure to make it a great one. Spend it with friends and yummy alcohol. Let the partying begin. Bring your own cup for added fun.
