Today I welcomed brand new Blog Sponsors Social and Cocktail and now we follow up with some great advice on the perfect Champagne Cocktails for a Wedding.
Champagne Cocktails are now the quintessential drink to serve to your wedding guests.
Adding Champagne to any cocktail brings it to a new level of sophistication and is a fitting way to toast this extra special occasion.
Champagne Cocktails for a wedding reception tend to be light and fruity and are often enjoyed by people who do not normally drink much alcohol or are not fans of cocktails.
Our top tip when selecting a Champagne Cocktail for your wedding reception is that we recommend that you use a classic brand `brut` – it doesn’t need to have a year.
There is little point using particularly expensive Champagne when creating Champagne Cocktails as many of the nuances, which make it so expensive, will get lost when you add the other ingredients.
Also, in recent years, the slightly less expensive prosecco is being used more and more to create wedding reception cocktails, as an alternative to Champagne.
We have selected 3 Champagne Cocktails which will add an extra special touch to any Wedding Reception celebration.
