Champagne Cocktails

It is believed that champagne cocktails made their first appearance in 1861 when Prince Albert passed away and England went into mourning. A bartender in London’s Brooks Club decided that champagne should mourn too, and paired it with Guinness stout to make what is known today as a black velvet. Nowadays there are countless bubbly variations that can be had before dinner or after, with dessert.

The new trend in champagne cocktails—champagne on ice—was inspired by “La Piscine,” a popular St. Tropez practice of adding ice cubes to champagne to keep it cool. Moët & Chandon were pioneers in this trend with their release of Ice Imperial, a champagne specifically designed to be consumed over ice. Fruit, mint or ginger can be thrown in too for a well-rounded cocktail. Veuve Clicquot also came out with Rich, a sweet champagne especially created for cocktails, which allows for easy experimentation with ingredients such as grapefruit, celery or tea. A playful invitation to enjoy champagne differently this summer.
