In preparation for the upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations, we decided to make and sample champagne cocktails over the weekend. A fun job, to be sure, and this week I will feature three cocktails that we enjoyed to help you prepare for your New Year’s Eve party. All of the cocktails are easy to prepare with just a few commonly available ingredients.

This light cocktail uses apple juice, cognac, simple syrup, champagne, and apple chunks. Since it calls for simple syrup, make sure your apple juice isn’t sweetened (most isn’t anymore, but it can’t hurt to check). If you prefer an alcohol free cocktail, I’ve suggested a variation below.

    This sounds so good. It appears to be easy to make but really looks festive and yummy. I am adding this to the family day New Year celebration. What a great drink for brunch. Beats a Bloody Mary (or at least I think so!!!)
