You've seen bubbly brunch drinks before, but this tart lime variation, served at San Francisco's Nopa (one of our favorite Bay Area brunch spots) is a bit unusual, made with herbal Green Chartreuse and maraschino liqueur to sweeten.
When Josh Pearson of Sepia in Chicago first created this tequila-based drink, it was intended to be served with Australian sparkling wine (south by southwest, get it?). But when supplies of the stuff became unreliable, Sepia switched to Moscato d'Asti as the topper for this ongoing crowd favorite.

Have you ever really bungled a cocktail? I mean, really screwed it up to the point where you had to toss it in the sink? With the Negroni Sbagliato, you can screw up a drink and yet still make something delicious. You see, sbagliato, in Italian, means "bungled" or "mistaken."
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.
If you're hosting brunch and you want to serve something a little more creative than the standard mimosa, consider this tart and fresh variation on the mojito.

This tart and refreshing cocktail, adapted from Kate Simon's Tiny Bubbles: Fizzy Cocktails for Every Occasion is quite a bit more complex and tasty than the bottle of subpar prosecco you're likely to find in the New Year's Eve party fridge. It's a variation on the South Side cocktail, with the bitter oils of the citrus contributing a refreshing pungent note, and the bubbly adding brightness and light.
This spin on a traditional Black Velvet brings out the chocolaty side of stout. For a festive touch, add a hint of orange bitters and rub the rim of the glass with orange peel. If you're a fan of those foil-wrapped chocolate oranges, you may have just found your new favorite holiday drink.
