There’s always a good reason to drink champagne but the golden drops of heaven should especially be an obvious guest on New Year’s Eve. Drink it as it is – or do as we do; add a little to your favorite cocktail. Get inspired by these classic cocktails, which are all based on champagne.
This dark and full-bodied cocktail was originally made back in 1861 in Brook’s Club in London. It’s perfectly suitable for a heavy meal or the following party. The dark and intense beer is a wonderful combination with the light and sparkling champagne.
One Guiness beer
Fill up a high ball glass with Guiness and top it off with champagne. Simple as that!
