Lillet Champagne Cocktail For New Year's Eve

A Lighter NYE Drink: Lillet Champagne Cocktail

We're almost to the finish line of holiday madness — New Year's Eve is less than a week away! Whether you're hosting a party or staying in with that special someone, it's nice to celebrate with a drink. The dilemma: cocktails are higher in calories than champagne, but champagne doesn't always have the same creative kick as a mixed drink.

If you're looking for something different to sip this holiday but are worried about calories, try this Lillet Blanc Champagne cocktail. Lillet Blanc is a French aperitif wine that has flavors of citrus and honey, and when combined, it really steps up the flavor of champagne. I love this cocktail because I still get all the celebratory bubbles of Champagne but feel like I am drinking a fancy cocktail. And since it's a wine-based drink, it's also a lot lower in alcohol and calories when compared to a spirit-based cocktail.
