the only champagne cocktail recipe you need for NYE

Recently, Hannah and I were celebrating a bit of the ole happy hour and came across this champagne cocktail on the menu of Mr. West… and we fell in love. Not only is it so incredibly easy to make, but it’s refreshing, delicious, and so perfect for New Year’s Eve. Trust us, this is what you’ll want to be sipping when the clock strikes midnight!

It’s sort of silly to even call this cocktail a recipe because it’s so straightforward and easy to make… but it’s so damn good. I also love this champagne cocktail recipe because it’s an easy drink to serve if you’re hosting a party. Once you set out the champagne, sugar cubes, and bitters, your guests can mix their own cocktails… freeing you up to really enjoy the party!

    But what does it taste like?
    Sweet from the sugar? Bitter from the grapefruit?

    • yup, a bit of sweet and tart! and the champagne has a bit of that nice effervescence.
