Because It's Monday...

And because I haven't blogged in a few weeks (oops!). We could all use a cocktail, right? My love for champagne cocktails is intense and after a recent trip to New Orleans (more on that later) I was reminded of how much I enjoy a celebratory cocktail for no apparent reason. With that, I thought I'd bring you a few champagne cocktail ideas today.

My very favorite champagne cocktail is none other than the French 75. It's light, citrusy, fancy and pretty. I'm typically not a gin drinker but for this cocktail, I make an exception. 


This time of year, a Bellini bar sounds just perfect for a weekend brunch. And with the season winding down soon, we should all capitalize on this idea stat. 

Although the Midnight Royale may be a little more fitting for the cooler months, it still makes my list of top champagne cocktails. Do you remember it from Casablanca? (one of my favorite movies of all time!)

I adore St. Germain and when paired with champagne, it's a winning combination. This elderflower champagne cocktail is quickly becoming a favorite--especially this time of year.

And of course there's the ole breakfast standby, the Mimosa. One can never go wrong with this reliable classic. 

What's your favorite champagne cocktail? Cheers--hope y'all have a great Monday! 


  1. So, after this weekends festivities I vowed to never drink again (ha!) but these cocktails have my mouth watering! It was not until recently that I discovered my love for champagne! Boy, was I missing out! I never know how to buy it though... I guess I don't really know what I like and there are so many options! Do you have any tips on figuring out what kind of champagne you prefer?!

    1. Hi Jenn! I've had those weekends, too! Actually, I do and that's a great idea for a future post--thanks! Stay tuned! :)

  2. French 75s are my absolute favorite, but you have me oh so curious about this Midnight Royale thing. I've seen Casablanca, but I don't remember this one?? Teach me your ways!
