The New Champagne Toast


When we think of booze for New Years Eve, our minds go straight to champagne–the sparkling wine most closely associated with celebratory events. For most party-goers, nothing says starting the new year off fresh than by popping open a nice bottle of bubbly. For this new year why not change it up? The usual midnight champagne toast with the regular glass of sparkling wine is a thing of the past. To ensure you start 2014 in the best way, try a champagne cocktail from Buca di Beppo or The General. They mixed champagne with deliciously festive cocktail regulars to create the ultimate drink for the celebration. These two exciting spins on the regular glass of champagne are perfect to enjoy at the bar or to whip up for the guests at your New Years Eve party.
