Pop! Cider

Serious Eats María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

A splash of apple cider makes this drink appropriate for fall, and herbal, honeyed Benedictine is a natural mate. More

Bellini Jam

Serious Eats Stephanie Stiavetti Post a comment

This Bellini jam is a perfect combination of sweet peaches and zippy champagne. Smooth with a touch of bite, it cures what ails you. More

Lavender French 75

Serious Eats Kelly Carámbula 1 comment

This festive take on a classic drink tastes like spring—a little floral, a little bright, and a little bubbly—just right, if you ask me. More

Champagne Jelly

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 6 comments

You don't need to use the fancy French stuff for this recipe—any decent, drinkable sparkling wine will work. Your jelly might look a bit loose at the end of the cooking time, but don't fret. Your jars may need to sit overnight to set properly. More

Grapefruit Champagne Float

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz Post a comment

This sorbet can be whipped up a few hours before guests arrive. Serve the float in individual flutes or bowls, or as a large punch with the sorbet floating in the center. I use 2 to 3 ounces of Champagne for a medium-sized scoop, which should get you around 8 servings with one bottle of Champagne. More

Bonnie Prince Charlie

Serious Eats The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

It's a sparkler, but on the dry side, crisp Veuve Ambal brut blanc de blanc with Drambuie (there's the Scotch tie-in), St. Germain (which McCarthy calls "liquid MSG"), and a twist of lemon. Leave the lemon pith side up and it'll bubble effusively for minutes on end. More

Chatham Artillery Punch

Serious Eats Marleigh Riggins Miller 4 comments

To finish off this roundup of recipes from Dave Wondrich's Punch, I have selected a monster. The big dog. The epic, party-starting, punch-to-end-all-punches: Chatham Artillery Punch. More

Drink the Book: Champagne Cup

Serious Eats Marleigh Riggins Miller Post a comment

The Champagne Cup is one of six champagne punches featured in Esquire's Handbook for Hosts. Combining the fresh tang of pineapple, cucumber, orange and cherry with the rich flavors of cognac and Benedictine, the Champagne Cup underscores the wine without overwhelming it. More

Cook the Book: Champagne Margaritas

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

While tequila can sometimes be a polarizing, I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't enjoy a glass of Champagne. In Fiesta at Rick's, Rick Bayless makes one of the most light and lovely apertifs I've had in a long time. Mixing up a batch of these at home brought to mind the easy drinking qualities of a mimosa as well as the bracingly limey refreshment of a margarita. More

Time for a Drink: Buck's Fizz

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 5 comments

A Buck's Fizz is a special cocktail. It can take the familiar Mimosa to an entirely new level. More

Time for a Drink: Champagne Julep

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 2 comments

Let's start the weekend right--with a cocktail recipe from Paul Clarke (The Cocktail Chronicles). Need more than one? Hit up the archives. Cheers! The great heat wave of aught-nine seems to have broken in the Northwest, but that doesn't mean... More

Time for a Drink: Stepping into Summer

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 8 comments

There's no denying that we're settling into summer. Over the past couple of years we've suggested a number of seasonal refreshers; here are a few to look into as you plan your summer activities. More

Cook the Book: Guava Bellini

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

Photograph from Luiz Castro on Flickr The bellini is one classy cocktail. The simple mix of prosecco and peach puree has been around for a while, originating sometime between 1934 and 1948 at the historic Harry's Bar in Venice. The... More

New Year's Champagne Cocktail: The Kir Royale du Bois

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 4 comments

This renovation of the classic black currant French Champagne cocktail is triple-spiked: Champagne, crème de mure (a blackberry liqueur), and berry vodka are tempered with a purée of fresh blackberries. As you drink, the buoyant blackberry descends lower into your flute; how apropos. More

New Year's Champagne Cocktail: The Chic French 75

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 2 comments

his French 75 uses sugar cubes to add a touch of exhibitionism to a New Year's cocktail party. Pass a tray of these lemon and gin and Champagne cocktails around, and as each guest picks one up, drop a sugar cube or two into their flute. More

New Year's Champagne Cocktail: The Wintergreen

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 3 comments

Recall the season of the snowmen as you celebrate around a toasty fire with this wintergreen cocktail. Champagne is mixed with sweet mint syrup and crème de menthe, and crowned with a mint-green wreath of mint sugar. Cool. More

New Year's Champagne Cocktail: The Shirley Temple, All Grown Up

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 3 comments

This cocktail is an alcoholic homage to my youthful libation: Grenadine is replaced with sweet cherry brandy, Sprite or ginger ale with Champagne, and the crowning glory, the Maraschino cherry, ousted by a blushing fresh, tart, and real substitute. This cocktail proves that sometimes child stars do make something of themselves once they grow up. More

Time for a Drink: Air Mail

Serious Eats Paul Clarke Post a comment

Sure, you could make mimosas on Mother's Day. But if you're looking for something a little more adventurous to make with your bubbly--or, perhaps the idea of spending an afternoon at your mother's place requires a little extra fortification--you can send your greetings via Air Mail. More

Time for a Drink: Black Velvet

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 2 comments

The Black Velvet's name perfectly describes the experience and sensation of drinking one: thick, rich, luxurious, decadent and probably a little bit dangerous. I was apprehensive the first time I came across the recipe, but I was quickly won over: the drink marries the stout's ferrous tang with the dry, fruity crispness of Champagne, and makes itself all the more drinkable by cutting the beer's robust richness with all those manic bubbles. More

Champagne Cocktail

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 4 comments

For many people New Year's Eve means breaking out the bubbly, but all too often the bottles are kept socked away until midnight. That's a shame—good Champagne and other sparkling wines are great to enjoy throughout the evening (in moderation, of course). And as a bonus, modest wines easily take on a new, more luscious character with just a little help from the liquor cabinet. More
