Nothing's more celebratory than a glass of champagne. Bubbly and effervescent, the joyous libation adds a festive note to your reception's cocktail hour. Plus, sparking wine mixes well with other ingredients so you can easily create a custom signature cocktail that's both wedding-appropriate and speaks to your personality as a couple. For some creative ideas on dressing up your sparkling signature drink, check out these six champagne cocktails below that will be sure to get the party started.

Champagne & Popsicles (above): For a whimsical take on a signature drink, add raspberry popsicles to chilled glasses of champagne — your guests will get a kick out of the cool treat.

Champagne Mojito: For a twist on the classic Cuban cocktail, swap out the rum for champagne instead (you can get the recipe here!).

Lavender Champagne: If your wedding setting is a bit more rustic, we love the idea of garnishing flutes of champagne with a single sprig of fragrant lavender.

Persimmon Smash: The bright hues of this lovely libation are so sunny and fresh. The drink combines persimmon puree, champagne, and a splash of St. Germain. (Intrigued? You can find the recipe here).

Modern French 75: A fresh take on the classic champagne cocktail, this version includes orange bitters, along with quince and apple-citrus syrup and a garnish of fresh oregano (try out the recipe here).

Blackberries & Champagne: Before pouring champagne, dust the rims of each glass with sugar and then garnish each drink with skewered blackberries. This could also work with plenty of other in-season fruit that complement your color scheme, like blueberries, raspberries, or even figs.
