First make the rosemary simple syrup. It’s one part sugar one part water and a few sprigs of rosemary. This will hold for a long time so you can make a little extra. Allow to cool before using it and remove the rosemary once it has a nice rosemary aroma.

Add the gin, pomegranate seeds and rosemary simple syrup to a shaker or plastic jar. Muddle to get all the juices out of the pomegranate seeds. Pour the liquid into a glass through a sieve.

About the Champagne Cocktails

These six cocktails have been tried and tested by myself and I like all of them. However if you can try mixing one before your guests arrive. Maybe you would like things a little bit sweeter or use a different garnish or glass. Then do so, pouring an early drink while preparing will not hurt you either.

All recipes makes one cocktail, this way it is easy to multiply the recipe and make as many as you want.

Champagne vs Cava, Cremant or Prosecco

Only Champagne is Champagne. With that said Champagne do cost at least three times as much as a really great Cremant or Cava. And you will be blending it with a bunch of other stuff.

So let your budget decide, I almost always go for a good Cava or Cremant instead of Champagne. The flavors is simply just as good and I prefer to break my New Years Eve budget on the food instead.

The only thing you need to make sure is that you choose a dry Champagne for these recipes. All of them are tried with either Cava, Prosecco and Champagne all dry. You will be adding sugar in one form or the other in most of the recipes.

About Glasses for Champagne Cocktails

As you can see I use a few different types of glasses for these cocktails. All work for any drink. I do think it is a bit easier to pour and make the drinks when they are not served in Champagne flutes. Any glass that make your guests feel like it will be a great night works.

There are no rules, at least not that can’t be broken from time to time.

Pouring the Champagne Cocktails

Champagne easily rises and pours over when you pour it. This is even more true once you add sugar and other ingredients. So pour very slowly to not spill too much of the good stuff.
