It's time to raise a toast this summer with our easy-to-follow Champagne cocktail recipes to make at home.

Champagne Cocktails

It is no surprise that Champagne is regarded as a right Royal tipple.

Its prestigious heritage first gained traction in the 1700's when Champagne was served during the coronation of several French Kings.  Due to this Royal connection, combined with the presumption that royalty equalled wealth and luxury, Champagne quickly became regarded as a regal drink.

In the United Kingdom, various Royal Warrants have been awarded to Champagne brands over the years including Veuve Clicquot, Moet & Chandon and Lanson. Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth, is even said to conclude each day by sipping on an ice cold glass of Champagne!

As Champagne is bound to be flowing for this weekend’s Royal Wedding, we’re sharing some traditional tipples topped with Champagne so you can raise a cocktail to the occasion.

Forget the shaker - these cocktails simply require adding the ingredients to your Champagne flute and topping with bubbly - the easy way to enjoy cocktails!
