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.
