On the rare occasion that we actually have a business card on hand when we meet, you may have noticed the Champagne Gang doesn't go by traditional titles. Instead you find each of our favorite Champagne Cocktails.
But why Champagne Cocktails and not our favorite bottles from our favorite Champagne Houses? PRO TIP: We believe Champagne Traditional should never be served on tap. What makes Champagne so special is the bottle fermentation process making each bottle, even from the same maker, house and year, it's own masterpiece.
The Champagne Cocktail dates back to the 1700s with sugar, bitters, brandy and bubbles. As we moved through the years of Hemingway and the classic cocktails, The French 75 and Aperol Sprtiz were born. We love them so much we wanted to share the recipes for you to enjoy as the heat index climbs into summer.
Gabrielle's go to for every occasion. The French 75 was her signature cocktail at her wedding and she is convinced it is the cure for your Monday Blues, Throwback Thursday, Friday Celebrations as well as your Typical Tuesday.
This is Ana's top choice. She honeymooned in Italy and while in Florence, they found the view from every roof top to pair perfectly with an Aperol Spritz. Everyday around 3pm, Every Italian stops for an apertivo hour. Low alcohol spritzers are served with warmed olives, bread and olive oil as a snack to tide you over until a late night dinner. It's a way of life that we want to sign up for everyday!
