Alright, so New Year's Eve is quickly approaching, which means two things. First, there will be New Year's Eve cocktails. And second, December 31 serves as the official reminder that we've been feasting for a solid two months straight. If you're like me, you're probably feeling weighed down from all the Halloween candy, Thanksgiving pie, Hanukkah Gelt, and Christmas cookies. Don't get me wrong, it's been great, but I'd say it's safe to assume we're all looking forward to a little levity come 2015. And what better way to lighten up the first minutes of your new year than with a champagne celebration?
Champagne. It's light, bright, bubbly, and when paired with timeless holiday spirits, it'll have you floating on cloud nine just in time for the countdown. So go ahead and toast to the lighter side this New Year's Eve with these 10 champagne-based cocktails.
