TOAST THE NEW YEAR AND HOLIDAY CHEER WITH THIS GORGEOUS BERRY CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL RECIPE!
Since the beginning of our relationship, Bryan and I have always spearheaded New Year’s Eve celebrations. It was never a big deal in my house growing up, but I loved having a fun excuse to get our friends – our chosen family – together for a cheerful holiday celebration. Whether hosting our Minnesota friends at his parents’ house or hosting just our closest friends here at home, we love hosting a New Year’s Eve party.
In the past, I’ve always gone all out when it came to appetizers or even full meals, but I’ve never done a special New Year’s Eve cocktail before. We’ve just popped the bubbly and poured. I decided this was the year I would step up my cocktail recipe game and craft new champagne cocktail recipes. It actually started with my White Christmas Sangria and it definitely did not end with this Sparking Berry recipe.
My favorite thing about this drink is how pretty it is! The dark pink color you get from cooking down the berries is gorgeous mixed with sparkling wine or champagne. Plus, I added the berries to a toothpick in addition to a little sprig of mint for a pop of contrasting color to finish the entire look. I chose mint because I love how it pairs with the fresh berries.

Toast your holiday festivities with a Berry Champagne Cocktail. Lightly sweetened with blackberries, blueberries and raspberries with a gorgeous first impression for your holiday parties.
- 1 cups Blackberries
- 1/2 cup Blueberries
- 1/2 cup Raspberries
- 2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 bottle Champagne or Sparkling Wine
- mint (garnish)
In a medium saucepan, combine the berries, vanilla, sugar, and water. Bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add mixture to blender or food processor and blend smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Berry Mixture can be refrigerated for up to two weeks.
If you have an aversion to seeds, you can push the mixture through a mesh strainer before cooling. I did not personally notice any.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of berry mixture to a champagne glass. Fill with sparkling wine or champagne.
Garnish with your favorite berries and a small piece of fresh mint if you would love a splash of color that goes well with the berries!
The Berry Mixture could make up to 15 drinks depending on how much you put in the glass.
