Amos Gott and four champagne cocktails

Amos Gott, of AmosEvents, recently treated us to four champagne cocktails, and we’ve got all the details for you today!

4 Gorgeous + Delicious Holiday Champagne Cocktail Recipes with AmosEvents and Kroger

Pomegranate Champagne Kick Cocktail

With ginger beer added, this cocktail has a bit of a spicy kick that we enjoy so much. And, it’s such a gorgeous cocktail. This is a drink your guests will remember for years to come.

Amos says that while you can line the cocktail glasses with the oranges to prep, do not fill the glasses with ice until you are ready to serve. The ice helps keep the pomegranate arils on the top of the cocktail for a prettier presentation.

Raspberry Sorbet Champagne

This is a drink that after Amos made it for us last year, we all made it, and made it, and made it! This is delicious and super easy. Not only does it work well during the holidays, but it works well throughout the year. Experiment with different flavors and glassware for a variety of seasonal treats.

And, while this is a great cocktail to kick off an evening, we really like this as the dessert round! No spoons needed.

This Raspberry Sorbet Champagne Cocktail is so easy and delicious! Serve as a cocktail to start the evening or brunch, or serve with a large scoop of sorbet for your dessert! Kroger’s ‘Private Selection’ sorbet is our personal favorite (above and beyond this being a sponsored article for Kroger!).

Sparkling Apple Cider Champagne Cocktail

There is nothing as comforting as apple cider. And, while we think of cold weather with a warm apple cider drink, this sparkling one is super festive and far more appropriate for a hearty cheers! And, this means it’s equally at home throughout the holidays all the way to New Year’s Eve.

Amos suggests cutting the apple across with a sharp knife, then taking the seeds out to create the star middle. And, he says you’ll want the apple garnish to rest slightly off to the side, not straight up, which requires you to think about your cut. If you think of the apple slice as a clock, cut a line from 7 o’clock towards 12 o’clock in order to make it sit right on the rim of the glass.

See this photo for a better understanding of the apple garnish.

  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 bottle champagne
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  • Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar together and place on a plate. You'll be using this to line the rim of the champagne glass.
  • Pour a little bit of apple cider onto a small plate.
  • Cut apples into thin ⅛-inch slices across the whole apple to create circles.

  • Now that everything is prepped, grab 6 large champagne flutes.
  • Dip the top of each champagne flute into the apple cider (the cider on the plate) to wet the rim. Then, dip the same rim into the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture to create a tasty rim.

Ornament Champagne Cocktail

This cocktail is all about the presentation! But, you still want it to taste good — we’ve got you covered. Find large, clear glass ball ornaments. Remove the metal hanger part and wash the inside of the glass. Once dry, these are ready to be your cocktail vessels. Yes, really!

This cocktail is simply a mixture of pomegranate juice and champagne. You can also use cranberry juice. You just want the cocktail to be festive, tasty, and red.

You could line these cocktails up, with the ornaments filled with the champagne cocktail and placed into a large martini glass, to create a visual feast. Guests can be handed the ornament with a festive straw to sip. Or, for an even bigger wow moment, you can pour each cocktail-filled ornament into the martini glass for an A+ grade on presentation!
