- Drop a slice of lemon into the glass.
- Garnish with red raspberries or strawberries on a stick. Add mint sprigs to complete the presentation.
As for what to serve with champagne cocktails, you want your hors d’ oeuvres to be equally light and, most especially, you should do away with thick sauces and dips. Instead, go for peeled cocktail shrimps with a slightly sour dip with a generous serving of pimientos.
Berries, strawberries, lemons, oranges, and pomelos also go well with champagne cocktails. Unsalted crackers, nuts, and dried fruits, including dates, help bring out the happiness in every glass.
Don’t get it wrong. Champagne is champagne and it’s a drink that’s already great on its own as long as you make sure that it is chilled before you say, “Cheers!” Using it for a cocktail just amps up the excitement and anticipation for its great taste by several notches higher. In the end, what really matters is that you’re squeezing out all the fun and energy you need out of Friday to help you fully recharge for another full week ahead. Cheers to that!
What mixes good with champagne?
The rule of thumb when it comes to champagne cocktails is to add as little ingredients as possible. Since champagne has a light and fresh flavour to it, all you want to achieve is to amplify its natural personality rather than mask it. Sour fruits and carbonated mixers naturally go well with champagne. For contrast, simply mix mint, lemon balm, and other cooling herbs
Is Prosecco a champagne?
Technically, only sparkling wines that are produced in the Champagne region of France, may carry the “champagne” brand. Champagnes are regulated by French authorities, each one graded based on certain standards set. That’s why you will typically see “Brut” “Cuvee” and “Vintage Champagne,” among others, written on the labels.
Prosecco, on the other hand, is a sparkling wine reserved only for Italian brands. Prosecco, like champagne, is also regulated and follow a stringent classification.
What is the best champagne to use for mimosas?
Brut Champagne, which is characteristically dry and contains less sugar and tannins, are ideal for making Mimosa. Since Mimosa is a sweet, orangy cocktail, champagne with less sugar in it will naturally complement the mix.
