Part of the fun of a champagne bar (as seen in this post as part of a Shutterfly campaign) is creating a choose-your-own-adventure experience for your guests when it comes to their drinks. Lots of bottles of booze and recipes to follow create a bit of confusion or really icky tasting drinks for some, so it’s good to shore up the mixology for your guests and create pre-made bottles for them to serve from. I love these sealed pourers that I got at World Market for keeping mixers easily pourable. Happily, with a little bit of planning, I was able to keep my mixers in the colors of my party. I am a dork like that. For guests, making a champagne cocktail was as easy as choosing a mixer, splashing a bit in a glass then topping with champagne.
Read on for the blue, green, pink and orange recipes!
Out of all of the ones I made, this was my (and my husband’s) favorite. I know, it was a terrible awful job having to mix and dispose of all these drinks, but we did it for the greater good and hope you enjoy!
