A Two Ingredient Ginger Champagne Cocktail Perfect for your Oscar Night – Light, Bubbly and Refreshing!
Oh the Oscars! I’m not an awards show kind of gal, but I do love the Tonys and, of course, the Oscars. For years my husband never, ever watched them. Bryan is definitely not an awards show kind of guy.He just refused and said they were boring. However, one year, we started a casual date night at home, munching on snacks, sipping an adult beverage, and chatting while the Oscars were on in the background. He became hooked, and Oscar Night became a tradition in The Love Nerds’ house which definitely deserves it’s own Ginger Champagne Cocktail!
Plus, let’s just be real here for a second. I can get my husband to sit down and watch or even work on most things with me if I offer him up a tasty cocktail like this one. And it is tasty! The Oscar is a light, refreshing cocktail that has the subtlest of kicks from the ginger to brighten the champagne. That maybe just sounds like a whole bunch of foodie nonsense but it’s totally how I feel.
It is the perfect celebratory cocktail for two on date night as much as it is the perfect party cocktail because it contains only two ingredients! Yup, only two! Easy cocktail recipes are my favorite because I really am a bit lazy. 😉
Ginger Beer is bringing the ginger flavor to the cocktail which is one of my favorite products to have on hand for cocktails or mocktails. For those that might not be familiar, Ginger Beer is not alcoholic as its name might suggest. Ginger Beer does go through a fermentation process unlike ginger ale and it’s also much stronger and spicier. So all you need to make this Ginger Champagne Cocktail is Ginger Beer and Champagne/Sparkling Wine!
- Ginger Beer, Chilled
- Champagne or Sparkling Wine, Chilled
- Fill your flute ⅓ of the way full with chilled ginger beer then top off with your champagne/sparkling wine. Enjoy!
If you want to spruce up the presentation, dip the rim of the glasses in a little lime juice or simple syrup followed by gold sugar or edible gold flakes. OR, by some pretty gold rimmed flutes!
