There's nothing better than a Champagne toast to ring in the New Year, but if you're looking to add a twist to a classic glass of bubbly, opt for this Veuve Cliquot–based cocktail. The refreshing combination of Champagne and hints of citrus are sure to put your guests in the mood to party. Not hosting a New Year's Eve soirée? This playful beverage would also make a lovely signature drink at your wedding reception. Cheers! —Rosie Purdy
