New Year's Eve Cocktail Recipe
As you count down to midnight this December 31st, spice up your party with delicious New Year’s cocktails. Everyone is sure to enjoy the unique New Year’s Eve drinks served at your party. Here are a few alcoholic and non-alcoholic New Year’s drink recipes that are simple to put together and will delight all of your guests.
Mix up one of this delicious beverages for New Year’s:
- Berry Little Cocktail: This New Year’s cocktail combines fruity flavors for a refreshing beverage. To make, mix together 1 ounce chilled ruby red grapefruit vodka, 2 ounces chilled champagne, 1 ounce chilled cranberry juice, and 1 ounce chilled black currant juice or blackberry puree in a glass. Garnish with a skewer of garnished cranberries.
- Cognac Sparklers: These sophisticated New Year’s Eve cocktails find the perfect flavor balance between the sweet apple cider and the strong Cognac. To make two drinks, pour 1 tablespoon Cognac into each of two champagne flutes. Top each with ½ cup chilled sparkling apple cider (hard or soft) and finish off with a few dashes of bitters.
- Lemon Drop Champagne Punch: Whip up some celebratory punch with this fun recipe. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from 3 lemons in a long, continuous spiral. Juice your lemons, strain the pulp, and set aside. You should have around ¾ cup of juice. A helpful cook’s tip: lemons are easier to peel and juice when they are at room temperature rather than chilled. Next, heat ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar has all dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the zest. Your syrup will now need to cool completely, which will take approximately 2 hours. Finally, in your favorite punch bowl pour 1 bottle of chilled champagne, ¾ cup chilled vodka, your lemon juice, and syrup, and stir to combine. Serves 6-8.
- Cranberry Sparkler: For all of your designated drivers or younger guests, this New Year’s Eve cocktail is non-alcoholic, but still festive. In a champagne flute, pour 1 ½ ounces blackberry puree and 2 ounces white cranberry juice. Fill to top with sparkling water and garnish with a mint leaf.
Open up the bar and make it a night to remember with your New Year cocktails. These tasty beverages will be the perfect complement to the celebration and good company shared that night.
