Prior to starting this blog I had no idea how popular champagne cocktails were especially when it comes to New Years Eve. I’ve posted several champagne cocktail recipes on here, including my own “Lushworthy Creation,” and if you think I’m out of drink recipes then think again my friend. These latest champagne cocktail drink recipes, “The Resolution” and the “Pink Slipper,” feature Sauza Tequila and Courvoisier Rose. And if you happen to be in the New York City area this week “The Resolution” is a featured cocktail at Time Square’s Blue Fin while the “Pink Slipper” will be served at Mediterranean restaurant Zio.
6 parts Sauza® Silver Tequila (or Sauza® Blue Silver Tequila)
1 part Pomegranate Juice
1 part Simple syrup
Dash of Peychaud’s Bitters
16 parts Champagne
Silver Candy Beads
Build first 4 ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, and strain into a champagne glass. Top with Champagne and candy garnish. Serve at midnight.
It’s Not Your Average Cognac – A lot of people are turned off by the strong taste of cognac and I won’t name names, but a lot of people can’t handle their cognac either. But unlike most cognac’s Courvoisier Rosé offers a much more smooth, refreshing taste. And if you’ve yet to try cognac before this would be a great starting point.
It’s Easy On The Wallet – At only $24.99 for a 750ml bottle Courvoisier Rosé really is a steal. So feel free to spend that extra dough you saved on some snackage.
Mixer? What Mixer? – Courvoisier Rosé is one of few liquors that can really be enjoyed by itself or on the rocks. With notes of blackberry, black currant, and a touch of cherry as well as vanilla, honey, and vine-peach flavors you can see why Courvoisier Rosé can easily be enjoyed sans the mixers.
Appease The Picky – I’m sure we’ve all had that moment when you found yourself feeling overwhelmed in the liquor store because you have absolutely no idea what to buy for a friends dinner/house party. Since Courvoisier Rosé is made from both Courvoisier cognac and premium French red wine grapes it really is an ideal choice. You’ve got both your wine lovers and cognac connoisseurs covered with just one product.
If you find yourself wanting to give Courvoisier Rosé a shot feel free to check out one of the recipes below. I feel like the “Pink Slipper” has my name written all over it.
