Toast with a Champagne cocktail

If you're throwing a New Year's Eve party, you'll need a bubbly cocktail.

Whether you're serving Champagne, prosecco, cava or any other sparkling wine variety, the possibilities are endless when making party cocktails. We do recommend that if you're spending more than $100 on a bottle of sparkling, you drink it as is — don't add any mixers, or you'll miss out on the unique, expensive flavor and aroma of said bottle. The great thing about sparkling wines is that they are normally very economically accessible, unless you go for the good stuff, like real Champagne.

The great thing about prosecco is that you can normally get a fantastic bottle of it for under $20. Made in Italy, this sparkling white wine can be either dry or extra dry, so take this into account when making cocktails with it. If the other ingredients in the drink recipe are very sweet, then go with an extra-dry prosecco.
