Pink Champagne Cocktails

Pretty In Pink… Champagne, That Is!

With pink champagne sales on the rise, it’s no wonder if you’ve started to look at that bottle of bubbly and wondered what other drinks can be made from it. Pink champagnes are fruity in flavor and tend to pair well with strawberries due to the similarity in taste. The sweetness level can vary depending on the maker: if you’re picking up a bottle, make sure to pay attention to the neck tag for notes about the particular flavor profile. Although champagne is traditionally a drink for ‘special occasions’, there’s nothing wrong with popping open a bottle to enjoy during a quiet night in.
