Things to Add to Champagne

Make Your Glass of Bubbly Even Fancier

Champagne and sparkling wine are pretty fancy on their own, but if you're looking to make the moment even more special, we've got a few simple ideas for you.

  • Use berries: Drop a few fresh raspberries or blackberries in your glass for a fruity addition. The delicate champagne bubbles will get trapped in the berry, and you'll be left with a fizzy treat at the end of your drink. Pomegranate seeds are another great option, as they float really sweetly among the bubbles.
  • Make a champagne cocktail: This classic libation involves a sugar cube, bitters, and just a touch of Armagnac.
  • Play with interesting liqueurs: A bit of cassis transforms a glass of champagne into a kir royale. Play around with your favorite liqueurs, like St-Germain or crème de violette, to create memorable drinks.
  • Create a sugar rim: Get crafty with your champagne glass by using sanding sugar. Colorful sugar rims are unexpected and playful.
  • Make a strawberry garnish: A strawberry can make a lovely garnish — one that makes any occasion even more celebratory.
