Not all champagnes are great in a champagne cocktail and the above are much too good to dilute with fruit juices, etc. As mentioned here, my only go to with Veuve is St. Germain which is an elderflower liqueur and doesn’t overwhelm the taste of the champagne – instead it compliments it.
At the request of one of my readers, here are some of the Top Champagne Brands to know:
Of the above, my favorites are Veuve Cliquot (and their Rose), Armand de Brignac (aka Ace of Spades), and Perrier Jouet (I would also recommend their Rose – not only is it delicious but also a beautiful bottle).
For your champagne cocktails like a mimosa, bellini, etc. I would choose a less expensive, yet still quality
tasting brand. My go-to for that is Segura Viudas Cava Brut – it isn’t expensive and it’s yummy 🙂
What are your favorite champagnes, darlings?
