Let This Champagne Cocktail Take You on a Temporary Getaway

If you can't really get away to a luxe vacation spot during the holidays, you can at least temporarily transport yourself to a relaxing mental state via a satisfying sparkling cocktail. Apples, orange, and lemon juices, elderflower liqueur, and sweet sparkling wine are all easy-to-find ingredients, so this cocktail is as stress-free as can be. And with all the rough-and-tumble going on about you during the holidays, keep spills and glass breakage to a minimum by serving the cocktails in Govino plastic flutes like the ones above.

The sparkling cocktail is surprisingly light and sweet, and you can munch on the wine-soaked apple slices once you've drained the flute. If you're prepared to be sent to a temporary dream state, see the sparkling cocktail recipe now.
