Happy New Year’s Eve, glitter girls!

No matter what your NYE plans entail (black tie event, oyster roast, just hanging at the house), you can work a classic champagne cocktail in there somewhere. Maybe it’s your pre-game drink; maybe it’s what you toast at midnight. Either way, here’s how to dress up a basic bottle of bubbly.

Ingredients:

  • Chilled champagne
  • Sugar cubes
  • Lemon peels
  • Angostura bitters

Method:

Place one sugar cube in the bottom of each champagne glass and top with chilled champagne. Add 3-5 dashes of bitters (depending on your taste–take it easy the first time) and garnish with a lemon peel. Insert sparkly stirrer and enjoy!

Working on NYE? Need a little something for your co-workers? A party favor for tonight? Try this with a champagne split/paper straw/ribbon!
