Mix It Up: 7 Fun Champagne Cocktails for Valentine’s Day

So today is Valentine’s Day.

You’ve probably already got dinner reservations made or ingredients purchased for an at-home dinner.  You’ve probably already taken care of the flowers and candy.  But what about drinks?  Don’t forget a nice bottle of champagne to go with dinner or dessert!  Aside from New Year’s Eve, I would venture to guess that more champagne is consumed on Valentine’s Day than on any other day of the year.  And why not?  Champagne is delicious and pairs so well with chocolate…another Valentine’s Day favorite!  As much as I love a glass of champagne, why not mix it up this year and serve a champagne cocktail or two?  Take a look at some of our favorite champagne mixers below, and from all of us here at Spiced, we hope you and your loved ones have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

7 Champagne Cocktails for Valentine's Day!

{1.} French 75. If you (or your loved one) is a gin lover, then this cocktail is for you!  Try replacing the gin with cognac for a fun twist on this classic champagne cocktail. Source: Honest Fare

{2}. Champagne + Elderflower.  If you’ve never tasted elderflower, then you are missing out.  St. Germain is a delicious elderflower liquor that is great on the rocks or in champagne.  Give it a shot!  Source: Sugar and Charm

{3.} Lemon Myrtle.  How can you go wrong when you mix champagne and limoncello together?  Source: Champagne and Macarons

{4.} Kir Royale. This cocktail features creme de cassis, a wonderful berry flavored liquor.  You can also substitute creme de cassis with Chambord for an intense black raspberry flavor.  Source: Fabulously French

{5.} Black Velvet. Why not start getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day early?  This cocktail includes equal parts champagne and Guinness Stout.  Interesting!  Source: BBC Good Food

{6.} Pimm’s Royale. This last champagne cocktail is similar to a Pimm’s Cup, but replaces the lemon-lime soda with champagne. Source: Style Nest
