Nothing beats a simple cocktail recipe, especially when one of the ingredients is Champagne!
These 2-ingredient Champagne cocktails are easy to make and won’t break the bank by requiring a million different ingredients. In fact, all of these cocktails only require TWO ingredients. That’s right: TWO! One of which is sparkling wine.
To quickly clarify: Champagne actually only refers to sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France and is usually quite expensive. So for these recipes, you can just use any of your favorite sparkling wines. Cava, Prosecco, Andre… anything works!
Some of these drinks will surprise you, while others are riffs on the classic mimosa. Either way, I promise you’ll discover something fun and new to try next time you have a bottle of bubbles sitting around the house 🙂
Most sangrias are made with many different juices, liquors, chopped fruits, and wines, but not this one! This recipe is SO simple and delicious that you'll wonder why you didn't think of it first. All you need is a juice blend and a bottle of sparkling rosé.
I'll be the first to admit this one sounds... pretty strange. Guiness and Champagne? I mean, WHAT. But hey, the Irish are professionals, so who are we to question their expertise? You'll still get the creaminess of the stout, but it'll be complemented by a clean, bubbly finish.
Similar to the Black Velvet cocktail, but maybe a littttttle bit more approachable for those who don't love stouts. Beermosas are a true classic and you can use any dry beer. I personally suggest a clean, citrusy pilsner, but Bud Light works just as well!
This simple recipe makes me SO excited for summer and strawberry season. It calls for frozen strawberries, which can be fresh off the patch or just from Harris Teeter. No judgement -- it'll be delicious either way.
Champagne + Angostura bitters = an incredible combination that marries two drinks from very different places: France and Venezuela. This is one of the OG cocktails and has been around for over 150 years. I'm technically cheating here because it has three ingredients including the sugar cube, but I'm classifying the sugar cube as a "pantry staple" like salt or pepper.
It's not the most interesting drink on this list, but you can't have a 2-ingredient Champagne cocktail round up without including the classic mimosa! This drink needs no introduction and you really can't go wrong. Whether you're using fresh squeezed or Tropicana, it's always a brunch favorite.
This cocktail is meant for Christmas, but I don't see any reason not to mix up a batch on St Patrick's Day or a boring Wednesday night! Melon liqueur is the star of this drink, giving it a festive neon color and an extra little kick of booziness.
A perfectly festive drink for Christmas time, or for when you just have extra pomegranate juice lying around. Either way, this is fantastically easy to make if you're hosting get-togethers during the holiday season!
Take a trip back to your youth by whipping up a batch of limeade-flavored Champagne! Make your own limeade if you're feeling ambitious, or just buy a bottle from the store if you don't have time to squeeze a zillion limes.
Yet another wonderful cocktail from our friends in France! This recipe combines crème de cassis -- a blackcurrent liqueur -- with Champagne, resulting in a gorgeous, effervescent ruby-colored mixed drink.
This robust twist on an Aperol spritz swaps out the Aperol for a spicy, darker liqueur called Amaro Nardini. This is the perfect winter weather drink and is a simple solution to keep you warm on a chilly night.
Grab a martini glass and get transported to Italy with this super fun happy hour cocktail! It's called a float because you float -- aka, slowly pour -- sparkling wine over the limoncello. If you don't think you like limoncello, I bet this drink would prove otherwise.
This fun take on a mimosa uses Champagne (obviously) and Trader Joe's Raspberry Cranberry Spritzer. You know what that means: DOUBLE the bubble. Although the recipe was made with Mother's day in mind, I think it would be perfect for any special or non-special occasion.
Who’s feeling thirsty after reading this list? Which cocktails surprised you the most? For me personally, it was the Black Velvet and now I’m dying to try it!
I seriously SCOURED the internet researching this, and found exactly 20 cocktails with the criteria at hand, but I am sure there are more out there. If you have a go-to 2-ingredient Champagne cocktail that I missed, please let me know in the comments section so I can give it a try. Gotta make sure my research is thorough, ya know? 🙂
I’m Rachel and I like to drink wine A LOT. Boxed wine, bottled wine, wine in a boat, wine from a moat. You get it. I also like to travel while I’m drinking to make it look more like a productive hobby as opposed to something to frown upon.
If you like going places, drinking in those places, and learning new things, this is the blog for you!
