Today is New Year's Eve, so I'm sure that many of you are like me and are busy preparing for your celebration. I love to host a get-together to ring in the new year! It's so much fun to come up with special touches to add to the food and drinks that I serve.
So, this year I decided to get a little creative with my champagne and create a glass of bubbles that has a little extra something for my guests. I tested these out recently and they were a total win!
What is great about these champagne infusions is that they are also easy and quick to make — They don’t overpower or ruin the classic taste of the champagne, or add sugar to the drink.
Here are the three champagne variations to try that are sure to wow your guests:
PEAR + SAGE INFUSED CHAMPAGNE: To create this, simply add 1 oz of fresh pear juice to a glass of cold champagne, and then add in a sprig of fresh sage and serve.
POMEGRANATE INFUSED CHAMPAGNE: Place a tablespoon of fresh pomegranate seeds in the bottom of a flute. Add in 1 oz. of POM Pomegranate juice, and top off with cold champagne and serve.
ROSEMARY + ST. GERMAIN CHAMPAGNE: Place 1 oz. of St Germain liqueur to a flute, and add in a fresh sprig of rosemary. Top off with cold champagne and serve.
Do you ever infuse your cocktails? Let me know if you try any of these out or have some other creative ways to serve champagne that you want to share. I hope you have an amazing New Year's Eve!
